WIRES-X

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 […]

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 […]

Our First Allstar Link Node

We’ve been working on a project for the last couple of weeks and now we can reveal it. Our 443.3 MHz repeater is now Allstar Link node 28941.  We removed IRLP from this repeater and used most of the same hardware to convert it to an Allstar node. What drove this change was an email […]

Echolink Added to 443.3 MHz

Good afternoon and Happy New Year! Today we added Echolink or better named EchoIRLP to the node on 443.3 MHz.  Previously we had no need to put Echolink on this node because used it as a full time WIN System repeater.  While you can still connect to the WIN System at any time, we no […]

IRLP Nodes will be Down

Merry Christmas everyone! Due to approaching weather that is likely to cause icing and power outages and no one around to monitor the repeaters, we have decided to turn off both IRLP nodes until Tuesday. Both repeaters will be left on but the nodes will be turned off.  If the repeater site loses power, you […]

Another Step Closer

//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.jsIn our attempt to get the repeaters back online full time, we (W5QO) has ordered and received a new Raspberry Pi IRLP node for the 443.3 repeater.  We did not keep our old node number for this node.  You may remember our node number was 8440 but now it is 4122.  They sent us a […]

Getting The Nodes Back on the Air

Hello everyone! I just wanted to give you an update on the IRLP/Echolink/WIN System nodes.  We have ordered a new Raspberry Pi version of the node for the 443.3 MHz (node 8440) repeater.  Once this repeater is up and running, another one will be ordered for the 146.7 MHz (node 3867) repeater.  The heat has […]
