For those wishing to update their code plug for the new VE3YRA DMR Repeater located at Bloomington Side Rd and Yonge, frequency is 444.51250 +5MHz CC1. Both TS1 and TS2 are enabled. I am not aware of any TG restrictions. Allan H and I tested it last night at the club meeting, using TG9 on TS2. It worked just fine, even as far up as Sharon Temple. The antenna situation is not perfect right now, but changes are to come. There are two antennas at present: RX antenna is a Mag Mount about 16 feet off the ground. TX antenna is an existing UHF antenna at the site; I think it is at ~160ft off the ground. Duplexer cans are being investigated at this time to enable both RX/TX to be on the same antenna (the 160ft one of course :-) ). Note : at this time the repeater is not connected to the internet. However, it has been programmed to connect to Brandmeister once it is connected to the internet. VE3YRA is also defined to Brandmeister in anticipation of this future connection. For any specific questions about the repeater, Steve (VE3UT) and David (VA3DCY) can be contacted. regards, Brian VE3IBW
Hi Folks... some scanning today with the FTM-100 and have found a FUSION repeater labelled VE3NUS @ 444.2875. It seems to be permanently connected to DMR Ontario TG 3023... I am not sure where it is located but I seem to be able to get into it easily from the home QTH.
