The repeater has been offline, but in April 2022, Larry WW6USA decided to start up the 2 meter D-STAR repeater. It will consist of:
- ICOM Repeater and controller
- Repeater Builder MMDVM modem
- Raspberry Pi 3 running Pi-Star image
- Pi-Star configured for D-STAR connected to ICOM repeater-controller
- Antenna mounted on 30 foot tower
Work is underway. Check back here for news and info.
A lot has been going on this year. but the W6DHS 2 meter D-Star repeater is back on the air. It has been relocated to the tack room in our barn. We added heating and air. And we have a new antenna.
Here’s the rack in the tack room:
Bill, W5YEJ, New Mexico’s ARRL Section Manager, meets W6DHS’s Kathy (President) and Larry (Trustee) at the Alamogordo HamFest
Larry, WW6USA and Kathy, KD6USA at Socorro Field Day 2013
On August 20, 2013, W6DHS went live from its new location in La Luz, New Mexico. Larry, WW6USA, is the new Admin for this D-STAR repeater.
