About the KJ6WZS Repeater

The KJ6WZS DStar Repeater is located approximately in the center of Gilroy, with an antenna about 35 feet high. It is a club repeater that operates at 443.5250 MHz, with a + 5 MHz offset. The repeater is coordinated by www.narcc.org. The hardware consists of a Kenwood TKR-850-1 25 watt repeater, a DVRPTR_V1 board, which is controled with a Raspberry Pi. The system is solar powered with backup batteries.  The repeater can also operate in analog mode. Please refrain from using the analog mode, unless it is an emergency, or there is a special event which has been authorized for analog use. Please feel free to contact Walter Dunckel K6ATV with any requests or questions.

 

Want to run your own hotspot for analog handhelds? This allows you to operate through Dstar with any analog handheld. All you need is a DVAP and a Raspberry Pi. Install guide here: http://maryland-dstar.org/downloads/raspi/RaspberryPi_Setup.pdf


The repeater is using G4KLX's TimerControl to automatically link to different gateways for particular scheduled dstar nets.
