Another Digital Conversion

Today, March 2, 2021, our 146.700 MHz repeater was changed out to a dual mode, FM and System Fusion (C4FM) repeater. This repeater is not going to have WIRES-X setup all the time but rather, after we get the proper hardware setup, it will continue to have both Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) and Echolink. Since the hardware is different, it will require new cables to be built to reconnect. The IRLP and Echolink will only be setup to work on FM but since the repeater is setup on automatic mode select (AMS), it will switch to the mode the user decides to use.

If you transmit on FM, the repeater will respond on FM. If you transmit in digital, the repeater will respond in digital just like the 443.300 MHz repeater. The 443.300 MHz repeater will continue to have WIRES-X just as it does now. If you have any questions, please either ask on the Facebook group or if you have given up on Facebook like we are on the verge of doing, just email club [at] del city radio club dot com. Just fix the email address by removing the spaces and the [at].

Also you can ask questions on our Discord Server. We have many channels setup on Discord as well as four voice channels.

IRLP is Back on 146.700 MHz

Recently you may remember, we took Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) nodes off our repeaters and replaced them with Allstar Link.  One of our interface boards (146.700 MHz) repeater was left with a hum.  We made the decision to put the IRLP node 3013 back on this repeater and leave the Allstar Link on the 443.300 MHz repeater.

We have not updated our user guide with the old instructions on how to use the IRLP for those that don’t remember. We’ll get to that as we have time.  At present, the IRLP and Echolink are on the 146.700 MHz repeater.  As usual, if you don’t remember the IRLP usage and control, just send an email to club at delcityars.com and we’ll send it to you.

Is anyone else enjoying this rain?  It is a true blessing.
