VE3RNR Repeater Coverage Improved

In an early morning assault on Friday November 24th, Dave, VA3UL, Conrad, VE3LOS and Peter, VA3WET went down to Fonthill and did some antenna work on the 440 repeater, VE3RNR. Conrad, equipped with safety harness and nerves of steel climbed the tower and managed to loosen the clamps with little difficulty. He then rotated the antenna approximately 90 degrees thus bringing St. Catharines into it's radiation footprint. Preliminary tests by Dave, VA3UL indicate that reception is greatly improved into St. Catharines. Users may now find less sensitivity into the Grimsby and Oakville area. Photos to follow.
