Information About the Node and Repeater
IRLP node 7448 is linked to the W5MOT repeater located in Southwest Austin, Texas. The repeater frequency is 147.320 MHz and requires a PL tone of 114.8. It is a Motorola MSR-2000 with an ACC RC-850 controller. It runs about 45 watts to an antenna on a hill whose base elevation is 912 above sea level. The antenna is up 350 feet on the tower for a total of 1,262 feet above sea level. It covers all of metropolitan Austin and beyond. The repeater has a backup generator that starts automatically if commercial power is lost.
The location of the repeater antenna is on the Freescale Campus in Oak Hill. If driving west on 290 by the 290/71 "Y" in SW Austin, look to your right. You can't miss it. It's quite large. It's located close to the Natural Gardener.
The IRLP node transceiver is an Alinco DR-135 running 5 watts and is located approximately 9.89 miles from the repeater site. The node is linked using a 9.1 dBi high gain Diamond A144S5R 2-Meter Yagi antenna. The node computer is Dell Optiplex, running CentOS release 4.9.
