The retuned duplexer was re-installed on 26 October 2022. The repeater is now performing very well, with good copy noted from low power stations in Armstrong and West Kelowna.

Power to the router and Pi microcomputer was also switched from mains to back-up battery.

A few minor issues are still unresolved but essentially the VE7EGO VHF repeater is now a valuable backup to VE7RSS, and in some local areas may provide better coverage.

A full report will follow shortly.
