Echolink added to the WN8Z 149.39 repeater in Fulton

149.39 update from Pat; WN8Z:

I've installed Echolink on the WN8Z (147.39 pl 103.5) repeater located in Fulton, NY. This gives excellent handheld coverage especially to the cities of Oswego and Fulton and covers Oswego County. Node # 7390.

Also on 10/2 we got the signal back to its previous performance with a fix to a recent feed line problem with the top mounted 2M antenna. The next project before winter is to side mount a DB-224 antenna at the top - hopefully before the first snow flies...

A big thanks to Volney Multiplex, Inc. of Fulton, NY for the donated tower space and for providing emergency generator and internet service directly to the repeater shack. - Pat
