The Waterford DMR Repeater has been installed in the new building and programmed for use on Friday May 29, 2015. This new repeater was purchased on a Grant from the DEMHS awarded to Region 4 ARES along with new duplexers. It is programmed to 448.975 + with a color code of 1. This is the old UHF analog frequency which we allowed the W1SP club to use for the last 9 months on the CT ARES DMR network. That repeater was located in Ledyard CT and has been reprogrammed to a frequency of 449.275 - with a color code of 1. The new DMR repeater is running 27 watts out of the duplexer with 0 watts reflected. Wayne, N1CLV has provided a Mifi hotspot and network adapater so the repeater could be connected to the network until we can get a permanent DSL line at the site.
I would like to thank all those who made this possible Joe K1IKE, Wayne N1CLV, Pat N1OTW, Rob KC1BNS, Curt N1TYU for all their time and efforts to make this possible. We still have to relocate the 146.97 repeater in the new building and make the antenna connection to the Water Tower which I hope we will complete in the next two weeks.
Enjoy the new repeaters.
