Grand Manan Island repeater to be relocated

Submitted by admin on Tue, 2022/11/15 - 19:12

The VE9GMI repeater (146.955-) repeater is off the air, and will be relocated to Campobello Island when scheduling permits.

Other services at the Airport Road site were moved to a privately owned tower with the start of the NB-TMR Radio system in 2016.    We were fortunate to be able to have the repeater remain active at the old site until it was removed on November 10, and the old site will be decommissioned.

Helping hands help hams

"Fine business" is the best way to say it, after some help from the Fredericton Amateur Radio Club and IRG members put Jim Noseworthy VE1HJN back on the air. Some deck renovations required the antenna to be moved and so helping hands worked today (June 23) to put Jim back on the air. Good work everyone!
