D-Star Repeater Information
KJ4KLD in Albany
has 3 repeaters: 144.96 + 2.5 (KJ4KLD C); 440.7 + 5 (KJ4KLD B)
[the space is important]; and 1249.25 (KJ4KLD A). The latter is
high speed data (pictures) only and simplex, and maybe not of
interest to us here just now.
Why have the high
speed data repeater?
GEMA funded the big DSTAR program so that info could be relayed.
This system, unlike any other commercially available just
now, can send a good picture reliably and live from, say, an
airplane to GEMA or any other 1.2 gig DD repeater in an
emergency! Imagine a
flood or damage from wind.)
2m/440 radio and HF radio are being moved to a room on the 9th
floor which should make access to that station a lot easier.

established a Phoebe Putney Radio Club KK4LLV for the purpose of
having a Call for the Phoebe club station and D-Star repeater.
