Node is open for use to licensed amateur radio operators.
Node uses standard IRLP DTMF commands.
Please be courteous and wait 30 seconds before your first
transmission to avoid accidentally interrupting a QSO.
This repeater is for use with the IRLP system and as such
assume it is connected to Reflectors 9050 (East Coast
Reflector) or 9109 (Alaska Channel.) I do not leave this
repeater connected to the WIN SYSTEM without *direct*
monitoring due to unfortunate cases of profanity in the past
(not the system operator's fault, just a lot of idiots in
such a wide area of coverage.)
Again, feel free to disconnect (DTMF 73)if you need to make
a call and don't sweat it if you don't connect it back to
where it was connected after you have made you call.
(JULY 2016) 444.675 currently uses a possibly "flaky" CAT250
controller which sometimes seems to cause things not to work
exactly the way they should. And the GM300 radios I have
often seem to go slightly off-frequency so don't assume it's
*your* equipment if the repeater sounds "fuzzy" or
distorted. It may take me a day, but I will swap the
offending radio out with a one I've gotten back on
This winter the repeater will most likely go (back) to a
Mastr 2 exec platform with a CAT700b controller... if WB4IVB
has the time to to help me make it so. This will eliminate
99% of the issues to date.
