After a VERY long hiatus, the scanner feed for the Huron County Sheriff’s Office is now back online. The feed is available on the left menu, or by clicking HERE
The feed may go down from time to time as we work out some software and hardware bugs. Thanks for your patience!
The Ashland Area Amatuer Radio Club recently put up a DMR repeater in Ashland. I finally picked up a TYT MD-380 portable to use. My ID is 1139023 and I monitor the N8IHI repeater in Ashland as well wel N8DPW in Mansfield and AL7OP in Clarksfield. Give me a shout sometime.
This Christmas I spoiled myself and got a new Samsung 850 EVO solid state drive to replace the old WD spindle drive. Storage capacity is still the same 500GB I had before, but man is the speed increase crazy! Here is the benchmark with the new SSD.
Up next is to configure the new ASUS RT-AC68U router!
The 224.580 repeater is back on the air and working well. Signal reports would be appreciated. Next on the list is getting IP to the site, stay tuned!
Repairs to the repeater are 95% complete, I only have a few small finishing touches to wrap up, and it will be complete.
The receiver and exciter have been repaired and are working fine. The controller was replaced with a Raspberry Pi running app_rpt Dial distribution, and DMK Engineering URI interface. The new controller has many features a top of the line controller has (such as an SCOM 7330), but only costs $100 dollars, including the interface. Some of the features include:
- Voice ID
- Time Clock
- Remote Base Capable
I am waiting on internet to be established at the site, but may install the repeater before that. With an internet connection, I will have full control over the repeater from anywhere I have internet access. Also, remote programming is possible with this configuration. The programming can be remotely backed-up on a USB thumb stick, which will be programmed to run automatically periodically.
Stay tuned for further updates.
