Albany 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.)

Gene W4AYK has established a Phoebe Putney Radio Club KK4LLV for the purpose of having a Call for the Phoebe club station and D-Star repeater.
