The .38 repeater is a DR-1x repeater in automatic mode which allows both analog and digital communications to occur, but not simultaneously.  This repeater is also linked to the Yaesu Wires-X network and the FCS X-Reflector networks with it’s own rooms on both systems. The room numbers and  analog control codes are listed below for your reference.  The repeater is controlled by an Scom 7330 controller and it controls the radio in analog mode only.  The repeater will only allow one mode of use at a time, so the first one wins.  If another user is in digital mode and an analog FM user keys up their digital radios will switch to FM mode only if they are in AMS mode on their equipment.  Unfortunately, if digital activity is coming in via the Internet it will remain in digital mode regardless.  This will lock out analog users. Also below you will find a linking diagram of how all this stuff is connected and you may find that interesting.  We are using 2 HRI-200 wires-x boxes, 2 Dell computers, 1 FTM-400 radio,  and 2 openspot RF Sharks to make this all happen.  There is also a link to a site where you can see real-time activity on the FCS 004 reflector. A little further down you can click a link to view our repeater coverage map. Please feel free to send me any comments you may by have using our contact page and by all means enjoy this new form of communications!
Analog (FM) users must turn on tone squelch (CTCSS) to avoid hearing the digital Noise From Digital users on the 147.380 repeater.
