during your net it was discovered  im not getting thru the gateway to be  heard across the system,,,,talking with some  run running the net he gave me some  info on how to program back into my  rig  K3PDR SPACE SPACE G ..... for the 2 meter  repeater,  I THINK  I HAVE IT  CORRECT  but  just checking to see if  there is any thign  else ???? I  havent  tried to make a contact yet,,,,

what would  I  NEED to put in the rig for the 445.181.25 portion to get thru the gate way ???  any help would be  great,frustrating hering and  not being  heard,,,,I couldnt  find this info on the K3PDR WEB SITE

Hi Don, Are you trying the K3PDR repeater. You could also try AA3E. I think they are linked. I'm not sure what a question mark means.

Hi Patrick,

I connected with the id-880h. I pinged all stations but didn't get a response. Maybe my path isn't good to the repeater. I did see N3KDA pop up but the connectivity test failed.

I am please to announce the UHF radio port of the PDRA Ratflector is back in operation. Tune your D-STAR radio to 445.73125 MHz, with a negative offset. Connect your radio to a computer running D-RATS. In D-RATS, make a serial connection to your D-STAR radio, and you are ready to communicate. You can still connect to this Ratflector by making a network connection to, port 9000.
