Egyptian Radio Club Repeater Joins Illinois Link

Link
The Egyptian Radio Club 443.325 repeater in downtown St. Louis is linked to WiresX. This covers Madison County quite well

Currently it is linked to Illinois Link. However, users can switch talk groups remotely. After 60 minutes of being on any other group it connects to it will automatically return to Illinois Link.

W9AIU (146.76) repeater adds P25

 

Peanust

The Egyptian Radio Club has recently upgraded the 146.76 repeater with a Motorola Quantar. This repeater does both standard analog FM and APCO Project 25 phase 1 or P25 Phase 1

When someone is using the repeater with a P25 signal, analog users will hear an ASCI like digital noise. Using a PL tone of 141.3 on both transmit and recieve will prevent analog users from hearing the digital noise. There S meter will still indicate that there is or is not a signal present on the frequency.

In time this same upgrade will be made to the 146.79 repeater.

ARES will continue just Analog for primary operations. This is simply because with all the different digital modes, and it maybe financially impossible for some members to purchase digital voice equipment.

The EOC and UCP Kenwood base stations, I do not believe are capable of digital voice, if they are it would be DSTAR.

If we get enough people with the same type of digital voice mode, a subnet maybe possible.
