GB7ES SERVICED

GB7ES Paul M0LRE and Dave G8PUO went to the the repeater church site end of week to give the Icom DSTAR system an oil change and tightening of the fan belt. All looking good, working well and no issues to report. The repeater is now running DSTAR G3 and welcomes users to give it a try. RILGES Repeater Group rilges org uk /G8PUO

G3 UPGRADE

Exciting news for Northern Ireland. The RS-RP3C gateway software which is being rolled out across the globe has been installed on the Icom D-Star Repeater GB7DN. The new software has significant improvements over its previous version and will enable D-STAR users to operate the “Terminal ID” and “Access Point” features of the new ID-51EPlus2 and ID-4100E D-STAR radios. With the support of local operators this upgrade means GB7DN is now improved and ready for use, try it today and see how the system works. Many thanks to 2I0JIE, Joe for his time and effort with GB7DN as it was enhanced with hardware recently. /GI0AZB

GB3XX - DAVENTRY

For several years GB3XX has been providing very limited coverage. One of the original antennas failed some years ago and single antenna working resulted in providing coverage for the immediate locality only. We are now extremely pleased to report that, due to the generous support of Western Power and Beacon Comms, GB3XX has 2 shiny new 4-stack arrays each with a new run of LDF-450.This has allowed us to revert to separate Tx/Rx antenna working and increase RX sensitivity. XX is now a dual mode analogue/system fusion repeater on RU73 77Hz CTCSS. 77Hz CTCSS is also transmitted in analogue mode to allow suppression of the digital 'noise' for analogue only users. Signal reports would be greatly appreciated. If anyone in the area would like to get involved with the repeater and future projects the Daventry Amateur Radio Repeater Group meets the last Tuesday of every month at the Saracens Head in Daventry./G8KHF

DMR Key Features

Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) preserves full channel width and divides it into alternating time slots that can each carry an individual call.
Motorola maintains that two-slot 12.5 kHz TDMA-based systems (providing 6.25 kHz equivalency) is more efficient.
This means that two separate conversations can be handled by the one repeater, on the same frequency but on a different "channel".
TDMA technology for narrowband 12.5 KHz (6.25 equivalent-6.25e) provides advantages of:
  1. feature flexibility
  2. lower equipment costs
  3. longer battery life
  4. future-readiness
  5. spectrum efficiency
