OFF THE AIR DUE TO AN ANTENNA/LINE FAILURE!
March 25th, 2017, it was discovered that the D-Star repeater was
operating into a defective antenna and/or feed line. To prevent damage
to the repeater itself, the D-Star system was shut down until the
reflected power problem can be resolved.
02/26/2018: A tower crew attempted to re-locate the D-Star repeater
antenna, and discovered that it had been destroyed by icing, which
cracked the antenna elements. A new antenna has been ordered.
KM4JXA D-STAR repeater is located on Bluff Mountain (Greentop) in
Sevier County, Tennessee. It shares the site with the WB4GBI 146.940,
444.300, 927.0625, and the 440.575 DMR repeater.
WHAT IS DSTAR?
This article is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
KM4JXA callsign is licensed to the East Tennessee Digital Radio Group,
trustee WB4GBI. Due to the necessity to have a separate callsign for
the D-Star repeater, the ETDRG was formed.
KM4JXA D-Star repeater operates on a non 600 Khz offest frequency of
147.44 receive (mobile transmit), 144.94 transmit (mobile receive).
This combination of frequencies is now specifically assigned for D-Star usage by
SERA, of which KM4JXA/WB4GBI is a member. The KM4JXA repeater is also
now included in database downloads from the D-Star information website,
is a photo of the KM4JXA D-Star repeater in its new home. The black
cabinet in the foreground houses the repeater controller, 2 meter
D-Star repeater itself, the six-cavity VHF duplexer, power supply, and
the Linux-based computer server necessary for internet operation and
access. The three tuned cavities for receiver filtering are to the left
of the D-Star cabinet.
