A VHF repeater that had been held up in customs in Nepal during the response to the April 25 magnitude 7.8 earthquake now has been installed at Tribhuvan University in Kathmandu. The new system will be put to use during the current earthquake recovery effort and available for any future emergencies, if needed. Initially disrupted by a magnitude 7.3 aftershock earlier this month, the installation was completed on May 20. It is Nepal’s first VHF repeater (145.81 in/145.21 out with 100 Hz tone). The country’s only other repeater is a dual-band (VHF/UHF) machine. Ojha said the repeater, installed by Sanjeeb Panday, 9N1SP, and his students at Tribhuvan University, has been tested successfully from multiple locations in Nepal’s capital city.
