We are currently in the process of working with a company to add a new repeater site and to only use our current site as a backup if the new site were to go down. We currently have a 40W Kenwood TKR-750 with an omni antenna mounted about 25ft up on the side of a building. We have been given the opportunity to put equipment on a tower with a mounting position 90FT AGL. Since this opportunity has presented itself we have decided to go with a totally new frequency for this repeater and a more powerful repeater. We are looking at the MTR-3000 with a 100w amplifier. I noticed that the MTR-3000 has some IP based features, we currently do not have an IP connection to the tower but we plan to run fiber to the tower in the coming year. We currently use the radios just as radios, no trunking or any of those other features but they could all be things we would like to look at in the future. Below is a screen snapshot of the quote I have been given, please ignore the battery line item as those are new batteries for our TK-2180's.
