Scrams is currently supporting the effort to bring D-Star communications to Southeastern Connecticut by allowing the shared use of the 146.67 and 448.975 repeater frequencies for D-Star. This means that the analog repeaters are still on the frequency but now there will also be a digital D-Star repater on the same frequency. This is being done to allow the expansion of D-Star into the area  to see if there is an interest in a digital mode of repeater operation. This mode greatly extends the range of communication through linking of repeaters. You may find that you will be talkiing to somone in another state or country through the repeater reflector. To use D-Star through the Gateway mode you must first register as D-Star user with one of your local system admistrators. In Connecticut go to www.ctdstar.org.

 

The D-Star repeaters are owned and controlled by Larry K1KRC and have a callsign of KB1TMO. They are presently located in Mystic, CT.

Operating guidelines;

Please listen to the frequency prior to transmitting to see if the frequency is in use. If you hear white noise on analog receive, that means that someone is using the digital D-Star repeater on the frequency. When using digital D-Star communications check that the frequency is not in use first by opening the monitor setting on your radio or checking your S-meter reading to see if the frequency is in use by an analog user.

To program your D-Star Radio for these repeaters use these settings;

The 146.67 and 448.975 D-Star repeaters are currently up in the test mode. The range is limited at this time. If you have a D-Star radio try the repeaters and let Larry K1KRC know if you can hear them or work through them. You can send him an email at [email protected]
