Following rigorous bench testing, the Galway VHF Group Digital Projects will be going live from their new site on the Western side of Galway City this weekend (3/4 November 2018).
The 70cm DMR repeater, EI7RHD, operates on 439.450 MHz O/P and 430.450 MHz I/P with a power output of 30 watts into a 9db Gain Colinear antenna.
The Multimode Digital Gateway, EI2GCD, will initially run DMR and Yaesu Fusion on 144.850 MHz running 20 watts into a dipole antenna. There are facilities to add more digital modes such as D-Star and P25 should the need arise.
The Galway Wires-X gateway, EI2SHD, operates on 144.8125 MHz and is operational from the Salthill area running 20 watts. This will facilitate experimentation with Wires-X networking in conjunction with the Galway Fusion Repeater EI2TBR.
