GMRS Callsign

  1. Hi all. Need some help. New to the forums and i am thinking this is a good place to get some guidance. I have a Kenwood TKR-820 repeater that has been set up and tuned for GMRS 462.550/467.550. It is a turn key system and does not need any configuring by me. I also have a Comtelco BS450XL antenna that has been tuned for GMRS with a center frequency of 465.550. http://www.comtelcoantennas.com/PDF/BS450XL3.PDF Now to bring this altogether i need some solid guidance on what kind of feedline to use to connect this to the repeater. I need to know what kind of lightening surpressor i might need to use. I need to know anything that would help me successfuly mate the antenna and repeater together for a reliable station. The antenna will be mounted on the side of my house on a mast. It will be 26 feet above the ground. The antenna height is what it is and can not change. The feedline length between the repeater and the antenna is no more that 40ft and probably closer to 30 feet. I live in FL so its pretty flat. Not a Rocky Mountain in sight. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. Regards, Kris
