P25

We’re working with a couple new repeaters which support many digital modes including P25.  I mention P25 because it’s bridged over to analog using talkgroup 10209 along with the DMR bridge to analog using talkgroup 310815.  One of the repeaters is at our Mt Pueblo site and the other is on Fremont Peak.  The Mt Pueblo machine is on 449.950- which requires Color Code 15 for DMR and both time slots are linked to Brandmeister.  The DStar mode is enabled along with P25 using a NAC of 293.  The same is true for the Fremont machine which runs on 449.500-

Boone decommissioned

After a couple of years we’ve decided to decommission the Boone repeater. The town of Boone was more than gracious to give us access to a site and it worked well during the time it was on air. The distance to travel was too great for me to service that machine and Cedarwood covers the area well.

3 Site Simulcast

We’ve been simulcasting from Cedarwood and Salida for several months now with pretty good results.  In certain areas you can hear both transmitters.  While it’s still usable it doesn’t sound as clean as I’d like.  We’ll be trying a third simulcast site right in the middle of the other 2 so we can see what happens.  Stay tuned.
