Chevelon Butte Repeater

Work is underway to build the new Chevelon Butte repeater. This repeater will be part of the new Navajo Link repeater network providing coverage for most of the White Mountain/Navajo County area. The work day was held on April 29 with the following participants:

  • Kevin Parmenter, KG5Q
  • Jim Mortensen, W7AZY
  • Dennis Mills, WA7ZZT
  • Steve Herron, AG7GD
  • Bill Turley, KJ7GYH

Here are a few pictures of the project and the team at work:

Greens Peak Antenna Update

The Kachina repeater maintenance team made another trip up to Greens Peak on Sunday October 31, 2021 to replace a faulty repeater antenna with a better one. Many thanks to Ken Troxel, Doug Troxel NQ5G, Jim Mortensen W7AZY, Randy Beecroft W7RJB, and Marie Mortensen N7SKS for their efforts. Here are a few pictures. It looks cold and windy, but at least the snow isn’t flying yet!
