How This GMRS Repeater Is Built:
This home brew/DIY GMRS repeater is made from two Wouxun KG-1000G mobile GMRS radios, Samlex SEC-1235 30 amp power supply, and a TRAM 1486 UHF fed by LMR-400 coax. Power Output at the radio is ~50 Watts. The Wouxun GMRS Radios, antenna, duplexer and power supply are all available at BuyTwoWayRadios.com . Backup power is provided by a Jackery 1000 1KW Solar Generator – so this repeater will remain online during power outages/emergencies, as long as the building is still standing.
The repeater is located approximately 1 mile northwest of Chaffey College at an elevation of approximately 1,900 feet with near perfect line-of-sight of the entire Inland Empire.
