Rocky prepares for new DSTAR repeater
The Mt Archer repeater site in Rockhampton will soon be home to a new homebrew DSTAR repeater. The repeater is currently being bench tested and undergoing final checks. We are planning to install the gear during a working bee on the last weekend of July. The system also features a new internet enabled APRS modem and site monitoring using telemetry data. Multiple reset capabilities have been designed into the system to limit the requirement to visit site if a reset is required. Internet access is provided by a 3G modem with a plan in place to get the microwave link going before the end of the year.
