VU2DFD repeater is active, I was able to access it with my Chinese “toy” VHF radio with the power of 2w and a homebrewed 5 element beam antenna( just 4m above from the ground).The repeater location is some 40km away from my home. VU2DFD is going to be the most active repeater in kerala. Lot of stations is heard from the near by districts like Kollam,Kottayam Idukky, Ernakulam etc. I heard some stations from kovilpatty also.With its superb setup, it is going to be the first of its kind in Kerala.
The repeater frequency is 144.475mhz + 600 khz Shift
