Welcome to the KL4GR Repeater from Homer, Alaska!

Owned and operated by Larry Zuccaro, this repeater is believed to be the first DMR repeater in the State of Alaska!

This project has been underway for a few weeks now and we hope to officially welcome Larry and Homer Alaska onboard via TAC-310 at 16:30EST on October 29th, 2016.

If you’re around a machine with TAC-310, please feel free to stop in and welcome Larry!

NF9K Indy Repeater – Output Power

The power supply for the amplifier has failed.  Right now the repeater is running at about 20W into the duplexers vs. the normal 100W.  The good news is that the power supply appears to be repairable.  We’re hoping to get it back online early to mid-next week.

 

So until then, you may see a reduced footprint/coverage from the repeater.

IN Statewide TG #3118

The Crossroads DMR c-Bridge now has an official feed for the IN Statewide TG #3118.  We are in the process of rolling this TG out to those repeaters that wish to carry it.  As it’s rolled out, the repeater pages will be updated.

 

Many thanks to Steve Jones (W9SMJ) for his part in making this happen.

NF9K Repeater TG Changes

I’ve renamed the Hytera TG’s to DMR+ as that more accurately represent the network that sources the talk groups.  While the Hytera repeaters are the primary ones on the DMR+ network, Motorola Repeaters as well as c-Bridges can join via the DMRPlus MotoBridge software, which is what we run to bring you these talk groups.

Additionally, I’ve also added a USA Nationwide from the BrandMeister Network.  TG #8721.  You can see the complete list of TG’s for the NF9K Indy Repeater HERE and for the NF9K Monrovia Repeater HERE.

Any questions, please give us a shout!

Indiana Statewide TG #3118

Based on questions that repeater trustees continue to receive, it has come to our attention that there is a significant amount of confusion and misunderstanding throughout the DMR user community surrounding the absence of talk group #3118 on the Crossroads DMR network.

What follows is not a negative statement, as that is not our way, it is merely a statement of fact:

Crossroads DMR has been denied a feed to talk group #3118.

Since talk group #3118 was not available, we created our own “statewide” option in talk group #8710, commonly called Crossroads or Crossroads Statewide.  This talk group is carried full time by all repeaters in the network.

DMR is a fantastic technology and with it comes many different ways to implement it.  Our group does not exist, not has it ever, to be a competitor or replacement for other networks.  We are merely trying to do something new, different and innovative.  After all, experimentation and innovation are corner stones of this great hobby that we all share.

​Thank you.
