I had to mount the chassis to the rack first, then populate the repeater with the modules afterward.



After the installation, before the leveller project.




How it looks now with the tape recorder ALC control.

My repeater is back on the air and it sounds better than ever. If you're in the east valley, try to access it on 440.675 (+) with a PL of 107.2. It's on AllStar node 29600, and it's usually tied to the Western Intertie Network (WIN system). The WIN System is a link of 90 or so full time repeaters all connected to each other from all over the USA and the world. Some are connected using RF, others use the Internet on Allstar or IRLP (Internet Radio Linking Project). My repeater is built on Asterisk, the Open Source Telephony Project. Asterisk is much more than a telephone system, it's a communications tinkerer's playground. A great platform from which to build a repeater. When you talk on my repeater, you're being heard on local ham repeaters all over the world!

Use a 40 year old cassette recorder to provide ALC for your node!
