HARC Installs New Repeater

It’s finally here!  The second DMR repeater under the W8YY call.  Through generous donations we were able to acquire a Motrola SLR 5700 and other necessary hardware to set up a new repeater at the Calumet Air Force Station.  Along with the new repeater we have changed our talkgroup structure as follows:
CAFS = Calumet Air Force Station
TS = Time Slot
TG = Talk Group
