In the period from May 2006 to February 2007 the LVA high-rise building has got a new cladding. For this, a scaffold was build at the roof of the high-rise building to provide access to a crane standing next to the building. The scaffold formed a cage around the antenna of DB0SJ, which caused enormous attenuation. For this time the repeater stood at the club's station DL0DX.

Until some years ago a rechargeable battery served as an emergency power supply for the relay. However, the experience shows, that the electrical power supply never broke down up to now, expect for two days a year, on which the electric of the LVA high-rise building is checked. Therefore, the battery is no longer attached.
