NF9K Indy Repeater Back On The Air

Thanks to the Sunday afternoon efforts of Don Hemenover and Doug Cochrane, the NF9K Indy Repeater is back on the air.

I’ve tested from Noblesville and it seems to be working as expected. Coverage/signal reports welcome.

Thanks for your patience while we addressed the feedline issues.

Height may increase your ERP, but it also increases the logistic needed to address any issues……

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!
