The Mackay area multimode repeater is another step closer. This afternoon we commissioned the multihop microwave link that provides internet access to our remote repeater site. This microwave system links VK4RUS at Sarina beach Rd to VK4RSA Jordan Creek Sarina and provides internet access to both sites. The network access links DMR, P25, DSTAR and C4FM to internet reflectors and also allows us to remotely monitor system performance. Weather camera CCTV will be added in the coming weeks with both sites having a great view of the Sarina area. Local hams are reminded to program the new frequency into there radios 147.075MHz +600KHz.
