K1ENF is the old police channel 1 antenna with a 70w Motorola MSF5000. It is located at the Enfield recycling station on a nice tower. Average height above terrain is good, but as a PD radio system still needed numerous voting receive sites to cover the town. These are no longer connected.
As a part of the Splash I am trying to find an acceptable location to add a temporary 25w repeater (analog or DMR) which will either cover the river (put race and safety on this repeater) or the entire busing route for bus-logistics (more challenging).
Areas with weak coverage from K1ENF:
- Bailey Rd (unacceptable)
- Katie Ln (unacceptable)
- Start (doable)
Test 1 – DMR repeater located on the west end of Bailey Rd:
Coverage from Springborn/Staging towards start is better than K1ENF. Unacceptable Areas from a HT:
- Start area
Back to the drawing board.
