When I got into ham radio I needed to power up my radios. Of course to power a 60W RF out radio you need quite some juice. Computer PSUs put out quite some juice. See where this is going?
In some countries, when someone wants to put up a repeater a coverage analysis must be presented. In Portugal there isn’t such a requirement so, as far as I know, nobody took the effort before to try to see what is exactly the Portuguese ham radio repeaters coverage. Well, nobody until now.
Since march 2016 I joined REP (Rede dos Emissores Portugueses), which is the national ham radio association. They have a club station in Porto, PT where they welcomed me to operate on. The callsign of the station is CS5RPT and it’s equiped for HF, VHF and the 70cm band.
