Geeze, if it was a duplexed site, imagine the size of those duplexers! Maybe they ran split sites?Many years ago there was a repeater down in the Madera area when I was a youngster, ran on 26 mhz, belonged to a lumber company there.
It was on 24/7 and unknown to the boss, it got some use at nite after the mill shut down lol.
Right below CB channel one and it covered a big area in the central valley.
I was about 20 when the mill shut down and so did the repeater, missed that machine.
Never got to see any of the radio stuff, they closed down, hauled off all of the lumber and equipment and that was the last real mill down there.Geeze, if it was a duplexed site, imagine the size of those duplexers! Maybe they ran split sites?
That reminds me I have to finish checking out the Cobra 2000 I bought last summer because it has extra channels. I know it has upper channels but I have to throw the switches different to see if it has lower channels. Problem is I bought a GE Super Base a while afterwards and started checking it out also. Too many irons in the fire and I've been missing this skip that has been rolling. Before you know it it will be time for getting the lawn equipment and motorcycle ready again for summer. I sure don't get bored ! LOLMany years ago there was a repeater down in the Madera area when I was a youngster, ran on 26 mhz, belonged to a lumber company there.
Honestly it's not hatred, I come from 11 meters. If it had been on 465mhz skip and noise would not really be an issue that it became nowadays. Amps couldn't be as easily made as they are today, they would require tighter specs therefore higher quality.Why is there so much hatred for CB being on 27mhz?
Like I said, no sabers. Where's the disagreement? W9CLL didn't even disagree with the statement I posted, he just attacked the forum I found it on. I neither agree nor disagree (publicly anyway) with his comment about that forum.Start a new thread invite the people the people you disagree with and go there to hash it out.
