The repeater locked up due to an issue with the auto mode select that was brought on by misuse of the repeater.So we will not be reinstalling the repeater until we have safe gaurds aganst it happening again.
The solution is to install a third party repeater controller/logic that will take over from the very basic logic in the repeater.This will actually solve a lot of issues.Not only will it stop the repeater from locking up.it will give a propper hang time,courtesy tones between overs,controled time out timer,audio repeater ID,the use of the audio ID from the old repeater keeper and better control of the repeater when switching modes.In esence it will act as a repeater should!!
By installing this,it will then mean that from the user's piont of view the audio will be much better as well as having a more sensitive receive,which means better coverage especially for mobiles and those of you in poor reception areas.
..............however we need your help to make this happen.........
WE NEED TO RAISE ABOUT £400.
That will cover the cost to buy an interface and a new controller plus P+P from the USA.

The Old Philip's repeater will not last for ever.And the old controller/logic that is being used on it plays up and shuts down,you may remember the ID going at double speed last year as well.It's given a lot of service over the past twenty years and needs a rest!!!
Please help keep WR alive and safe for the future .
