    The KC1ACI Repeater is now in operation. Located in Central Massachusetts. I have done some link testing with the W9WDX Repeater and we are in business. D Star of course.

    Lets get this party started !!

    Awesome! This is all running off a Raspberry PI, correct?

    I have the XRFWDX XReflector working - I just need to get it to it's final resting home for use. I also want to get a dashboard in place for it, but I can do that over time.

    I was also thinking about starting a Starnet group that we can subscribe to when we're by the D-Star radios. Any interest?

    Yes its all on the Raspberry pi. I just started the Trial period with the coordinated pair of frequencies. Not sure how long it stays in a Trial period before it becomes permanent and gets published in the repeater lists, but there shouldn't be any issues.

    I would be up for a Starnet Group!

    Old Thread but the KC1ACI B Repeater is still in operation. I am running a Kenwood 820 Repeater with a DVRPTR v1 Board and a new Radxa Quad Core linux box. You can check out the dashboard at http://kc1aci.no-ip.org ..

    Craig, I saw from the dashboard tonight that you connected to both the W9WDX repeater and the XRFWDX reflector today. I wasn't around the radio as I had the Jeep gas tank out, replacing the fuel pump :(.

    What times of the day are you normally monitoring your repeater?

    I'm usually listening in the afternoons. I just did my fuel pump not too long ago. I was replacing the tank skid plate and broke the plastic nipple off the fuel pump module .. Not a lot of fun.
    I'll connect in later today ...

    And the KC1ACI Repeater is back alive. Picked up a couple of MaxTrac radios and a DVRPTR V1 board and we are back in business. Check out the repeater dashboard at http://kc1aci.ddns.net

    Its not 100% just yet waiting on a new Duplexer which should be in very soon.
