While we were there we did some maintenance and found that there is a fault on the TX cavities causing a 4:1 VSWR!! So we have disconnected the TX cavities and we are running with a band pass filter and the RX cavities only.The RX cavities are ok but will not filter all of the TX signal hence it is a bit noisey.
The repeater is also running on low power to try and keep the interference between TX & RX to a minimum.
It may take up to 2 months to sort out the issues but hopefully get it done sooner. But at leased we have got her back on air.
