395 6M FM is back on air with a new folded dipole antenna. Performance is very good with a beacon keying every 30 minutes sending ZL2VH/R call sign. For those not wanting to hear the beacon then enable CTCSS on your 6M rig receiver using 151.4 Hz. You will then only hear the repeater when it passes voice traffic.

NOTE: During a lift in DX conditions a weak signal near the 52.950 MHz input frequency has been heard to intermittently false trigger the repeater. The QRM eventually subsides and the repeater mute closes. Be patient if this happens. 395 will time out to protect the TX after 9 minutes and reset when the QRM has gone.
