Aug 16 - 9M2RKK & 9M2RKL Downtime
Early morning QSO's was interupted again on August 16, due to both 9M2RKK & 9M2RKL repeater experiencing power interruption. A visit to Bukit Lanjan, by KL Regional Repreentative, 9W2XL - Bear, indicated that the Alinco Power supply (loaner from 9W2XL) experienced some connectivity problems (the Negative connector has come loose and have interrupted power connectivity intermittently).
A Quick decision was made to attempt fixing the problem later. At about 1630 hrs, 9W2XL, and yours truly, 9W2MCT, ascended Bukit Lanjan equipped with soldering tools and all.
A thorough check on the connectors confirmed 9W2XL's initial assessment, and rectification works commenced. A short while later , with some minor adjustments and both repeaters 'kechunked' to live!
