• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

anyone know what happened to the W7QO Hytera DMR repeater in Atlanta on 443.025?

Been gone for weeks now. I sent an email to the owner (W7QO) and no reply. Both of his NXDN repeaters are still operational, though there doesn't appear to be network activity on NXDN WW (TG 65000).

Be a shame if this repeater is gone. It was a flagship DMR that had portable coverage 40 miles outside of the city.

My XPR7550 has no "digital friends" to talk to. :(

There is a restriction due to pave paws military radar. That's why all DMR in eastern mass Maine and New Hampshire is on VHF

DMR is exploding. Indiana went from two repeaters to over twelve in one year. The advent of the CS700 ($180) has increased interest. CSI will introduce the CS7000 soon ($249) which will do analog, D-Star and DMR.

D-Star seems to have reached a plateau. Yaesu Fusion has interest but only because Yaesu is selling the repeaters for $500. DMR is growing and is far from reaching a plateau.

To research repeaters go to the DMR-MARC site DMR-MARC Network
There is a repeater map at the top DMR-MARC repeaters and a repeater/user searchable database DMR-MARC Network

For those wanting to learn about DMR, here is a guide

Does anyone know if there's any progress toward a DMR repeater (or two, or more) in the St Louis area? Although I don't live there, I have a friend in the area, who would benefit from the technology.

Thanks for the info.

Oklahoma City

We're excited to announce new repeaters in Hong Kong, Ottawa ON, Concord NH, Oklahoma City, Jasper GA, and Stuart FL. Coming soon: 2 in the Orlando area. We now have over 200 repeaters in 18 countries. Join the fun.
What frequency is the Oklahoma City system? Is there a place where we can get the specs of the system?

Thank you,
Paul, K5GLH

Over the weekend I got Austin Texas TRBO active on the network (with the help of another local ham who is providing the internet gateway for the repeater)

442.650 +5 CC 1 ---- KE5ZW
Active talk groups:
Austin Local - TG 2 - TS 2
Texas State Wide - TG 3148 - TS 2
North America - TG 3 - TS 1

These are only temporary as the repeater is right now a peer to a DFW repeater. There are plans to change it to a master for the Austin area netowrk that is in the planning stages of being developed.

That is incorrect...Johnson City DMR repeater is on the air. They have been experiencing some interference problems and hope to have resolved soon. There are also repeaters in Cleveland, Knoxville, and coming soon to Sevierville. More info about DMR activity in Tennessee at VolNET - DMR in the State of Tennessee

You need to check dates before saying I was incorrect. It was not on the air when I made that post over a year ago. Since then Stephen has bought another repeater and has put it up near Kingsport. I know all of this because I was part of it.

So maybe a better post would have been "Good news, the Johnson City repeater is back on the air (with a small desense issue.)
