VA5DR Equipment

This repeater is a home brew D-STAR repeater.  We are using a Kenwood TKR-850 UHF repeater, Sinclair four cavity duplexer, Astron power supply and a surplus PC to run the gateway and repeater software.  The interface is a Satoshi GMSK modem board.

We recently installed a new antenna and coax on the repeater which dramatically improved the range and useability.  All D-STAR users are welcome to use the repeater.

D-STAR Nets

We normally have the repeater connected to XRF005B. Feel free to unlink the repeater and use other links if you wish. 

Canadian D-STAR Net: The D-STAR Can-Net is held every Friday at 7PM CST on XRF021B. This net usually lasts over an hour. Feel free to check in.

Saskatchewan D-STAR Round Table: The Meewasin Amateur Radio Society also hosts the Saskatchewan D-STAR Round Table every Sunday night at 8:30PM.  This is NOT a QRU net; be prepared to tell us what you are doing with D-STAR and participate in the conversation!
