Allstar versus IRLP

We have recently converted our 443.300 MHz repeater from IRLP to Allstar Link.  We turned off IRLP node 3013.  We have started building a new Allstar Link node for our 146.700 MHz repeater as well.  I am looking at ways to see if we can salvage one of the IRLP nodes and have both connected […]

Link to Live Audio

We have added a link to our menu on the top of our web site labeled “Listen Live!” to make it easier for people to find the streaming audio.  As it stands, we are streaming our 146.7 MHz repeater 24 hours a day on Broadcastify.com, part of the Radio Reference organization.  You can also get […]

Cox Outage Map

Just in case any of you were wondering why our streaming audio is on and off and on again, this map should help explain.  Apparently the ice storm has really had an impact on the Cox High Speed Internet infrastructure. To be honest, our Internet has been pretty flaky since the last ice storm right […]

Cold Temperature Affect

Many times we have spoken about a cold solder joint that we’ve not fixed on the 146.7 MHz repeater.  What happens is once the temperature in the building gets down to about 40 degrees, the power amplifier stops transmitting. The repeater still hears people and does transmit, but only the exciter is transmitting. When this […]

Power Outage #2 11/30/15

What a weekend!  The power and Internet are back on at the repeater site and the streaming audio site but there are some IP issues that are being ironed out right now.  The IRLP nodes share the same ports so they require separate external IP addresses. You cannot forward the same port to two different […]

Power Outage Update 11/30/15

The power came on at the repeater site yesterday, 11/29/15 around 5:30 PM so the repeaters are back on the air.  Unfortunately the Cox Internet and phone service is not back online yet so the streaming audio is down.  As you may know, the streaming audio is located at a different place than the repeater […]
