Overall good, yet if it were me, I'd make 3 changes.

Overall, a NICE machine! I do have 3 specific things to bring up:
1) As last review, I stand by that a repeater's rating should be based on the output of the internal duplexer, although I realize I can use a higher gain antenna to make up the power difference.
2) The repeater's transmit audio is muted when the CW ID switches on. Is this normal for this model? My concern is that it will miss retransmitting a voice ID, possibly a rules violation.
3) Repeater testing information is included. So far so good! My worry is that if someone not authorized happens to tweak with the device, that unless the information such as squelch, RF power, etc from the selector is included and noted that it could cause unnecessary headaches. After all, the repeater itself can be used as a base station, a really decent feature in it's own.

Good Repeater-Does the Job

It's a good repeater that works well off the box and is easy to program. The only shortcoming is that it is not a 40w repeater, it's more like a 30w one when using the duplexer. According to support, if you increase the power to 40w, you will reduce it's lifespan. So it comes to you configured for 30w. Would I buy it again? Yes. Would I recommend it? Yes.

Great repeater! It was plug and play! Repeater came fully programmed and was ready to go! Bridgecom did a great job setting up. Just plug in power and go! Works great and solid as a rock! Mine came with internal duplexer tuned and ready to go for GMRS frequency! Only neg comment is internal fans are very loud during TX! - N3CAL / WRMJ802
