[TowerTalk] Conductivity of cement

One of our town's local 2m repeaters uses two separate antennas one for 
transmit and one for receive rather than spend the $1,500 for a duplexor. 
The penhouse concrete walls provide about 100db attenuation between the two 
antennas during repeater use.  No desense.  Seems like concrete does 
attentuate a bit ;-)
