After a long upgrade process, we now have WIRES-X node number 33521 installed on our 443.300 MHz repeater. We have removed Echolink and Allstar from this repeater as it stands right now.
The repeater is both digital C4FM (Yaesu System Fusion) and analog FM on auto detect mode. When using FM, the tone has been changed from 162.2 Hz to 103.5 Hz. The repeater also transmits a 103.5 Hz tone so that you can put your radio on tone squelch. Sometimes the WX5LAW comes in on our frequency so adding the tone squelch will mute some of that signal.
We’ll have to update our user guide to show the new node and instructions on how to use it. Also to update the changes on the 146.700 MHz. This has been a long road getting this setup and working because most of us are busy doing other things. We just updated Repeaterbook.com and ORSI with the new information as well.
We sincerely hope you will enjoy using the new digital format.
