Built in 1992, and responding to a real need, the
Mont Do Repeater FK8ZHA-R, belonging to the Association des Radio Amateurs en Nouvelle Caledonie (ARANC) has enabled users to significantly reduce the distance between the north, the east coast and south part of New Caledonia. This effort was born of the desire of the association members, which did not hesitate or skimped on the means, In order to ensure a successful installation of this repeater to provide a must in radio communication to all hamradio that the territory counts.

*
FK8EG/Jean ROZIER (SK)

Expected building of a new Repeater shelter in Mont Do during November 2007


In November 2007, extensive building of the shelter will be made based on availability of members and the weather conditions.

Mont Do VHF 2m Repeater, once completed will be linked with Semaphore
FK8ZHB-R VHF 2m Repeater situated on a hill overlooking Noumea city and which will very soon, get a few small changes.

A third relay, still under study could begin soon in a location, yet to be determined, but it seems that the site of Koumac would be most appropriate for its implementation.

Here are the technical characteristics of the Mont Do Repeater:

Two Transceiver which are: 1- Yaesu
FT-2800M, 2- Yaesu FT-1500M delivering an average power of 30 watts
4 Antennas TX / RX, 2 elements beam, vertically polarized.
The TX / RX is powered by Astron stabilized P.S 220v/13, 8v.
