Since the late months of 2006, the VE3SME Repeater has gone through some major changes, from being taken down from the original site of about twenty years located just west of Simcoe, Ontario on a commercial tower and at a height of approximately 150' to being temporarily set-up in the garage of VE3HJ at a height of 40' and reduced output power, while he tidied up the cabinet and the mass amount of wires.

While the cabinet changes were being done a search went out for coax that will be used to replace the aging and somewhat shorter cable that was used at the previous location.

After some searching, asking around and fundraising, a coil of 1"5/8 (transmitter) and a smaller bundle of 7/8" (link equipment)
cable was found and purchased in early months (winter) of 2007.

The repeater is back at the main site and in full operation.
