The Galway Digital Radio Network have received confirmation of the Licenses EJ7IBD for the Inishbofin Island DMR Repeater and EI7LRD for the Loughrea DMR Repeater. The two repeaters are on the bench in preparation for the airwaves.
The Inishbofin Island Repeater, EJ7IBD, will be set up with a 4 stack vertical system beaming East towards the mainland. This Repeater will prove excellent DMR coverage of the western Side of Connemara and up as far as Achill Island. This is the first repeater to be established on an Island and issued with an EJ prefix.
The Loughrea DMR Repeater will be established to the South East of Loughrea and will provide a huge coverage to the East and South East running 40 Watts into an Omni-Directional 4-Stack Vertical Array. The footprint of this repeater will probably overlap the coverage of the Mount Leinster Digital Repeater.Read More
