For those of you so equipped, the KC2HFL Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Repeater, which failed several weeks ago, is now back on the air.
The repeater is located atop the Halifax Medical Center (the old hospital building, not the original hospital building.) Antenna height is about 190 feet. Output power is 18 watts to the antenna. The antenna is an omni with 6 dB gain.
As a member of the DMR-MARC network, the system features connectivity to the FL Statewide, Southeast Region, Worldwide and Worldwide English talkgroups along with 2 Local talkgroups (2 & 9.) If none of this means anything to you, email me directly and I will gladly answer any questions.
If you are able to use this repeater, please share your experiences with it by email to me. We are looking to gather range and anomaly data. Please send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
