I have also posted a current draft of the Narrowband Proposal that the Narrowband Committee has been working on.  This has been a topic discussed over the last several meetings and provides more details on how the 2m and 70cm band could be re-channeled to narrowband.

Also, note the DR-1X can be set for NFM as well (12.5 KHz.) - a properly setup modem and with the repeater set to NFM should operate just fine in a 12.5 KHz. channel.

Let's not assume one incorrectly built repeater means that a correctly configured repeater cannot be built.

The PSRG DMR repeater WW7PSR was a Yaesu DR1X operating with an MMDVM. It was set for narrow band.

It was since replaced with a Motorola MTR-3000 TRBO 100 Watt repeater (Capitol Park, Seattle)

The Seattle ACS DMR repeater W7ACS is a Motorola SLR-5700 TRBO 50 Watt repeater (Lake Forest Park, Seattle)

The West Seattle DMR repeater W7AW is a Motorola SLR-5700 TRBO 50 Watt repeater (Westcrest Park, Seattle)

Sorry about the terminology.
You have an MMDVM powered Fusion Repeater in your system last information I had.
It is always up to the repeater owner to insure that the converted analog repeater is narrow band.

Hi Kenny

How is the HM Wan progressing ?

The reason I asked about the DNR repeater is that not all repeaters are created equal.
Any junk repeater including WB can be converted now.
Buyer be ware.
Guys who don’t want to pay for s Motorola are using old repeaters with an MMDVM device.

This does not make it always a NB repeater.
It is digital si long as it isn’t used in multi mode including Analog.
Seattle ACS has such a cobble.

The system, as described in the TDS, is a multi-mode DMR and System Fusion repeater, both being 12.5 kHz digital systems. There shouldn't be any issues with it operating in these narrowband digital pairs on 70cm.

Peter,

ICARC has never received a request for co-channeling this repeater with our 147.22 repeater. I do not know if that is an issue, but ICARC has not approved or issued co-channeling letter.

Granted, there are no issues to date with the operation of the Neilton Point repeater, but I believe a request for co-channeling and a subsequent approval letter of co-channeling is part of the approval process.

Re: Certificates of Coordinations sent

Kenny Richards
 

Hey Rich,

>900 Mhz? Also links to the copies of the other machines...
You should follow up with N7SS about the pending coordination for the 927.2125 machine. I don't believe it has gone up for a board vote yet, but seems like it is ready. (Scott's call)

I don't have any other coordinations which are pending for you, what ones are you curious about?  I don't remember what I was bugging you about either now, but it might have been cleaning up the 147.08 coordinations.

>I hope to have the  220 machine back up, and actually connected to the rest of the system. A couple more weeks I suspect. What a novel idea huh? we have the controller issue fixed, just playing with resistor values now trying to make the audio better. 

Great!  I am willing to help if I can, I have a personal interest in that machine getting connected to the other 220 repeaters around the area. My personal coverage driving to work sucks and Cougar will solve it. 

>Also, did you get your dstar machine running again? Just curious... 
My dstar machine (146.605) is off the air and won't return there due to problems with the cross-band linking frequency at 146.600. (An oversight when the narrowband digital pairs were created five years ago) I plan on moving to the 147.995 pair, but it is going to require a new radio and I'm still trying to source/identify one.

Kenny, KU7M
