New DSTAR repeater at the Gemfields commissioned
RPT1 VK4HTN B
RPT2 VK4HTN G
Located near Emerald in central Queensland. The Gemfields area includes the towns of Sapphire and Rubyvale famous for unique gemstones. The new repeater has been built around Tait 8200 radios, DVRPTRv1 and Raspberry Pi. The repeater will be linked to DCS028Q and is sponsored by Bob VK4HTN. Thanks Bob for the internet connection and access to the 40m tower. We are also hearing talk of two other DSTAR repeaters in the pipeline for Longreach and Mt Isa areas.
