Saving up for new antenna.

I’ve been thinking about the antenna for FR. I have decided to seek to fund a new antenna with greatly increased gain. It will be big, apparently a full 17ft tall, but this will also provide an advantage. It has about 12dbd gain. Also, it has more gain at the horizon than the current antenna and a narrow vertical beam width which, considering that FR is not sited at a high point, will likely provide better coverage.

Phoenix TG 235

The Phoenix people have decided to disconnect their TG235 from reflector 4400 on DMR+ so this can no longer be accessed from FR. The rest of the DMR+ <-> Phoenix linked TGs, including the regional ones, remain unaffected.
