442.5125 MHz KE8LDH in Akron is currently offline due to a radio failure. With access concerns and COVID, there is no ETA on a full replacement. KE8LDH will be temporarily setup at a low profile site in Norton.
Unfortunately, a few weeks after XLX330 Transcoding Stabilized the system starting having problems again. So back to the drawing board! Here’s info on the latest new system.
After a long, hard slog against what is obviously a first-world problem, the stability problems with the XLX330 reflector’s transcoding has been resolved. Back in June, we started having problems with XLX330 being stable. It was originally moved from his home at the repeater site due to heat. And since…
Back in August,changes were made to XLX330. After four months of unreliable behavior all digital modes have been moved back to the integrated xlxd process.
Recently WW8TF-15 was upgraded and reconfigured to be a two-way APRS IGate. Here’s how to build an easy two-way APRS IGate with existing or easily obtainable parts.
WW8TF-15 has been converted from a one-way relay iGate to a two-way iGate. Currently the iGate will only relay “message”-class items from the Internet to the APRS digipeaters but that will be expanded to a few other classes in the near future. It will relay all item classes from the…
Back in March, the build and configuration of the XLX330 reflector was discussed in depth. Since then, to keep costs down (i.e. more AMBE dongles), we’ve made some small adjustments. We decided to add transcoding with Brandmeister DMR due to the surge in interest in the Wooster area in DMR….
This is the second in a series of three planned articles discussing the modification of Yaesu DR-1X repeaters for solid, link-ready analog FM or as a multi-mode digital voice repeater. The planned articles are: Yaesu DR-1X Repeater Modifications: Common Concerns DR-1X Repeater Mods for Analog + Allstar DR-1X Repeater Mods…
The XLX Multiprotocol Reflector has a nice web-based dashboard that is also the linchpin of having your reflector registered in the XLX database. This guide helps ensure that your reflector number is secure and the hash key is not lost.
