Our digital repeater EI7WCD which was relocated to Carrickphierish in Waterford city as part of the recent site upgrade is now up and running following the approval of the recently applied for frequency change. The change was necessary to allow both the analogue and digital repeater share the same site. 430.275 +9 MHz replaces the old frequency of 439.675 -9 MHz. EI7WCD is a multimode MMDVM repeater and is DMR, DStar, YSF and analogue enabled covering Waterford City, South Kilkenny and the Suir Valley areas.
(DVU-R22 - input 439.275 MHz, output 430.275 MHz, 103.5Hz tone on TX & RX for analogue operation)
The system consists of a Motorola MTR2000 repeater running at 25watts interfaced with an MMDVM using a Raspberry Pi computer. The antenna is an omnidirectional vertical (5dbd) fed with Andrews LDF4-50 cable at 15m.
