The W8OAK DMR repeater is on the air!
The DMR repeater replaces the old UHF analog repeater and operates in
DMR mode only. The old analog repeater has been turned off.
The DMR repeater is temporarily operating from an antenna on the tower at the
Oakland County EOC until the antennas are replaced at its permanent
location in Pontiac.
For information needed to program your radio for the W8OAK DMR repeater, please
Note: If you are using the codeplug used with the Brooksie Way Half Marathon
last year, the only change needed from that configuration is to change the color
code value from 2 to 1 on the 63ARPSC channels.
