My understanding of the system configuration is a little different. The so-called "Mountain Lodge" repeater is a standard repeater (in other words, not one that is turned on or off). In order for the barracks and the field units to use it they must switch to a particular channel in their radios, as you indicated above.Repeater is back on for the listening pleasure of all....dont know how long it will last
I do not think that the switch to Channel 16 and the police involved shooting in Brooklyn recently are unrelated. I believe an officer (trooper) safety concern is at play in the decision to switch over.Repeater is back on for the listening pleasure of all....dont know how long it will last
I am unaware, at this time, of a repeater at the Graham site.Are they using repeater mode just on Schunnemunk or Graham as well? Same input PL or does a different PL activate the repeater? I know they used a separate PL for repeater mode for Jackie Jones in Rockland for special events.
I'm sure that you were already well aware of that...Sounding good all the way into NJ again. VHF off Schunnemunk sure travels....
