I attempted to setup a home repeater for my family to use in our general area. Unfortunatly having HOA I am afraid of attempting a 15-20 ft. antenna ona part of my roof.
I may and want to use a Buddipole method instead as a test.
My repeater is a Motorola GR500 setup, and appears to be working absolutly fine except I have to get the antenna up. Right now it has to go through several townhomes and then a slight hill in one direction.
I have two antennas bought specifically for GMRS frequencies - 1) n9tax slim jim and 2) SVU4500SP1 UHF Base Antenna, 450-470 MHz W/Cable
* I've noticed a couple GMRS repeaters in and around my location, Arcadia, Azusa, Covina, Glendora, Mt Wilson. I had a momentary thought, people willing, that we might network these if possible. What a sporead that would give us.
* Second - I'd donate this equipment (Motorola GR500 of mine for GMRS use if I could locate someone that had a facility/location that had a high enough spot to make the antenna work.
Now this writing is a little vague I know but I wanted to just toss out an idea and see what kind of response or help I might get.
Thatks folks - 73's.
