DSTAR – Offline/Upgrade

Category : Latest Club News

Over the last few months there has been some ongoing intermittent issues with the DSTAR repeater. Whilst the repeater up the hill has been OK, the gateway side of the DSTAR setup seems to have been playing up on the odd occasion.
As such, we have decided it is time to look at upgrading the gateway to an MMDVM board and to discontinue using the out of date DVRPTR v1. This will allow a new Dashboard, and allow new radio’s such as the Icom ID4100 to be used on our DSTAR repeater which are currently not compatible on the older technology.
There is some testing that needs to be done to “tune” the MMDVM board but we hope to have things back on the air as soon as possible. Thanks all for your patience.
