July 2001

All internal components of our Polyphaser IS-PM240-BP AC line lightening protector had to be replaced. Cost of this repair about $125.00.

January 2001

We completed the installation of a new battery backup system. The system consists of four 260 amp-hour Dyno deep cycle batteries, a Statpower Truecharge40 battery charger, and a custom built contactor / isolation panel. Cost of this upgrade was just over $1,000.
We also went to Kalama at the end of the month and assisted Dave, WB7DFV, (WA7HTJ's brother) the new owner of the 442.825 MHz. Kalama uhf repeater, re-install the repeater, antenna's, and the Evergreen Intertie links at the same location they used to be but in a brand new building and new tower. The installation team consisted of Dave, WB7DFV, Bob, WA7HTJ, Barry WA7HJR and Mike, KB7WUK. The installation went well and everything is working. This re-established not only the Kalama uhf repeater but the Evergreen Intertie connections to points south of Olympia.
