RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




The Englehard repeater is really going to be nice when it goes active.


RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




Going to have to get on the air for a change in May. New HRO just opened here in Plano over the weekend & I sprung for a new Icom HT with D-Star. Hacking my way through the configuration of that now! The new radios really need a web server in them so you could configure like a router! Actually, the Icom software isn't bad except springing for a $66 cable!

There's a DMR repeater in NH now, and there will soon be one in Englehard. No DSTAR down here that I know of.


RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




Thanks for the information.

Rob,

The photo of your dad at the B-24 is awesome!

Good to info about the repeaters. I never thought to bring the HT with me when I'm there.


RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




Thanks. Dad passed on about 4 years ago.

I'm usually listening on 145.15 PL 131.8. Give a call for K4HAT or me anytime you're here.


RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




I will give you a shout Rob. My ticket expired a while back. That's why I have no call sign.


RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




If any one is interested in checking in to our local net, you can use ECHOLINK on Node 2014.

You can learn all about ECHOLINK here:

http://www.echolink.org

Long story short: you find a local ECHOLINK repeater, and key up node 2014, and you'll be connected to our repeater. The net is at 8:00 on Thursday.

You can also download the app, and use your iPhone to check in. You have to have your license verified.






RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




OK folks Digital Mobile Radio or DMR is a reality now here on the Outer Banks. The Duck DMR repeater is on the way, Nags Head is working great and Englehard is down here in Hatteras for now.
We have linked our "local" talkgroup so that anyone who wants to can talk to one end of the Outer Banks to the other clear as digital radio makes it. Ocracoke to Wild horse country. de/K4HAT


RE: Ham Radio repeaters on the Outer Banks




I build dmr systems for my customer base. Nothing to link repeaters together for wide area coverage. It's the figure of lmr.
