As of late this afternoon we now have a DMR repeater on 449.375. I’ve programmed talk group 3100 (U.S. nationwide bridge) in TS1 as a static talk group. There isn’t anything programmed in TS2, so it can be used for local chat or directed to a talk group of the user’s choice.
Ron has taken the repeater for the WINS system down to do some modifications. If you go to winsystem.org there is streaming audio available.
Ron (AA7RP), John (KL7CY), and Bruce (K3BAT) went up to Elephant Head yesterday and completed the installation of the new repeater link equipment. Ron also went to the SAV for additional repairs. I just tried them from my QTH, and the link appears to be working fine. Also, I tried our Echolink node, and it appears to be back on the air.
A huge thanks to Ron, John, and Bruce for the all the hard work! We wouldn’t have the system capabilities we have without your outstanding efforts. 73, Tom K7AFA
We have received new components to rebuild the microwave link that provides Internet access to the repeaters and the ability to link them. We’ve started to swap out the old gear for the new gear, and the link will be down for about a week. Once the upgrade has been completed, the link should be more reliable than previously.
The microwave link to our high level site on Elephant Head is old and failing, causing intermittent issues with the link between the 145.27 and 145.29 repeaters and loss of administrative control.
The current transceivers are no longer available, so I've ordered the latest models in order to completely rebuild the system. Unfortunately, they're on back order until February. When received, the rebuilding will begin.
