Repeaters

The Wayne Technical Fanatics operate three repeaters in Rittman and Akron along with 2 APRS Digipeaters and an APRS iGate. These repeaters are multi-mode digital and do not currently support analog FM.

XRF330 Reflector

The club also runs the DSTAR XRF330 reflector as part of The Megalink Network Project. The reflector supports Modules A through Z. Module C is the default module for the WTF repeaters. Module A is the default for SARA and WARC repeaters. The reflector is available via DExtra as XRF330[A-Z] and DCS as DCS330[A-Z] (and XLX330[A-Z] for Pi-Star 4). The reflector is also available via DPLUS as REF330 for appropriately-configured Icom gateways. Use of the DCS protocol is strongly recommended.

In your radio, you’ll connect by:
UR: DCS330CL
RPT1: [your repeater/hotspot call and port]
RPT2: [your repeater/hotspot call and G]

for example fill in your own callsign and pad with spaces as needed to 8 characters:
UR: DCS330AL
RPT1: N8CD _ _ _ B
RPT2: N8CD _ _ _ G

Then once connected switch back to UR: CQCQCQ and you’ll be on the reflector.
