Plainfield Fire modified their license in the fall. Today testing the new repeater

Analog 460.3625 DPL 703. Zero hang time. I will make a DB sub.

The current 460.575 is co-channel w Clark which makes for some serious heterodyne. It remains to be seen if 460.3625 will become primary.

That and the age of the current repeater. It belongs in a museum.

460.3625 should become Fire 1..."allegedly". I included it in my Union County spring cleaning list I'll be submitting.

I think they were upgraded since you saw last. They got two XPR’s with new antenna’s a few years back. Two different sites. One main One standby same frequency different codes, zero hang time. Things have been changing recently.Skipping some details.

Oh and did anyone notice a signal difference on 460.575? I did.(y)
Much clearer. And they are staying on 460.575 for F1, I submitted the update.

Also, allegedly the low band gear has officially been pulled and completely retired.

I just got home from work up north, haven't listen yet. Any particular type of traffic yet?
Well they were on the East side of the city on portable. They were 50 percent into the F1 repeater, so the FGC switched everyone on F3 Citywide. The portable was exactly the same 50 percent. Appears no more coverage on that repeater on RX. I am sure the output will be better with no Clark heterodyne.

I do not expect much use. Changing channels has always been a challenge for most. Secondly, most people totally forget about the resources available.
