Oct.23.13 A few quick notes, VE6WRT 220 repeater on Hailstone Butte has been put into winter mode. As you will recall last winter the repeater was producing a howlling sound when keyed which echoed through the network. Temperature had to be just below the freezing mark for this to occurr. Much of the winter at that altitude is below freezing so we decided this year to put the repeater into safe mode. This had to be done before it did get cold. You will hear it but will not be able to key it. We were planning to do something about it this summer but with the roads all washed out in the area it never happened. Maybe next year.
The DStar repeater package in Banff has been removed. The ongoing cost was getting a bit much for us so it was decided to have it removed. Not sure at this time what the future plans are for this package. The local Banff FM repeater VE6BNF will continue to run for now and can be worked in Calgary via VE6AMP. The Park repeaters all continue to work well, voltages at mountain sites are good.
Dstar in Calgary will continue to work at this time although at some point we do have plans to re-install the Icom gateway software along with Dplus. With all the issues we had with FreeStar we have decided not to install it at this time.
