(July 25, 2014) VE5CC Repeater & IRLP
Node: As of July 15th, the VE5CC repeater and
IRLP were restored to operational. The repeater
suffered from a dead power supply and the node suffered
from a computer that was 14 years old. Everything
seems to be operating fine. If you observe any
anomalies with audio or operation, please send an email
to the list.
(July 25, 2014) MARS to host RAC AGM in
2015: We received word from our Midwest Director
Derek Hay VE4HAY that MARS has been approved to host the
Radio Amateurs of Canada AGM in 2015 in conjunction with
the Saskatchewan Hamfest; dates are set for July 4 &
5th, 2015. Mark it on your calendar now!
(June 2014) D-STAR in North Battleford:
The VE5RAD 147.12+ repeater that went un-operational
approximately a year ago has been repaired and is now
back online with DVRPTR v1.0 board instead of the
previous GMSK modem that was causing problems. The
repeater still has limited operation until the duplexer
can be re-tuned.
