New We are back in action and in the process of setting up a DMR repeater.  It is currently operating in the shack, but soon it will be moved to the barn for production.  This homebrew DMR repeater includes:

  • Repeater-Builder STM32_DVM_PiHat MMDVM (multi-mode digital voice modem)
  • 2 Motorola CDM-1550 analog radios
  • Raspberry Pi 3 running G4KLX MMDVMHost & using Pi-Star

We, the W6DHS Tularosa Basin Digital team — Kathy, KD6USA (President); Larry, WW6USA (Trustee); Heather, future ham (Treasurer); Mark, AF6FR (software guy) and Jim, K6JM (web guy) — are pleased to provide Southern New Mexico with an open DMR repeater system.  Once it is in full production, everyone will be welcome to use it.
