Access to EI2DBR Repeater changed to CTCSS

Our 2 meter repeater EI2DBR on 145.650 located at Devil's Bit Co. Tipperary has been suffering from interference on and off for the past while due to intermod. The interference is very intermittent and out of our control so we decided to change the access to CTCSS to prevent the false triggering of the repeater causing an annoyance to users.
A site visit was made today 12/01/2018 to made the necessary changes and the tone 103.5Hz was decided on and programmed in the unit.

Any users with queries regarding the changes can email them to: sirnrepeaters@gmail.com

Bweeng Repeater Relocation

It recently became necessary to relocate our 70cm repeater EI7BWR on 430.875 to an alternative site due to change of site owners who were not as accommodating to amateur radio. The new site is Mullaghanish Mountain which is located on the Cork/Kerry border. The coverage from the new site should be similar to the previous site but with improved coverage in a Westerly direction. Because of the relocation and to keep with the licencing format the callsign has been changed to EI7MHR.

Our 2 meter repeater EI2DBR on 145.650 located at Devil's Bit Co. Tipperary has been suffering from interference on and off for the past while due to intermod. The interference is very intermittent and out of our control so we are thinking of making the repeater tone access to stop the interference triggering it. We have decided to put it online for comment before making the change so we'd appreciate any input from users.
