Link audio problem - North East and East Zones

Submitted by admin on Fri, 2022/11/25 - 17:20

UPDATED:  Good news, we are advised that the problem has been resolved as of Friday afternoon. Previous message follows:

There is a problem with audio not always being passed from East and NorthEast zones to other zones when linked.  I.e. when linked, users in Moncton or Bathurst can hear audio from others around the province, and can hear each other, but others cannot hear them - users on the "other side" of the province only hear a silent carrier.

Grand Manan Island repeater to be relocated

Submitted by admin on Tue, 2022/11/15 - 19:12

The VE9GMI repeater (146.955-) repeater is off the air, and will be relocated to Campobello Island when scheduling permits.

Other services at the Airport Road site were moved to a privately owned tower with the start of the NB-TMR Radio system in 2016.    We were fortunate to be able to have the repeater remain active at the old site until it was removed on November 10, and the old site will be decommissioned.

In 1930, laws were proposed in Massachusetts and Missouri that would ban automobile radios, and a poll in 1934 found that 56% of people thought car radios were a dangerous distraction.

When hurricanes or tropical storms threaten, The Hurricane Watch Net activates on 14.325 MHz and 7.268 MHz, and will use either or both of these frequencies as propagation allows.

If conditions require, a CANWARN Net may be activated on all or part of the IRG system.  Be sure to listen to and follow the instructions of the net control station in giving any reports - report only what is asked --and remember the important ABC's: Accuracy, Brevity & Clarity.
