As of Tuesday afternoon, January 7 2019, VE1XI (Doaktown 146.910) is back on the air. A spare repeater has been installed and everything should be back to normal.
As of Friday, January 3 2020, the VE1BM (Fredericton 147.120) repeater has been repaired. Thanks go out to the Radio Communications Group of Dept of Transportation and Infrastructure for their help!
VE1XI (Doaktown 146.910) is off the air for repairs as of this date also. We'll keep you up-to-date on any change.
A new repeater has been added to the IRG repeater system: VE9GLA (Grand Lake) with frequency of 145.190 (minus offset). The repeater is located on Hardwood Ridge, and is operational as of December 19, 2019. If anyone has any signal or coverage reports to pass along, send us an e-mail via the contact form
At this time, the repeater is a stand-alone repeater, but will be added into one of the existing zones in a future reconfiguration of the IRG zone system.
The Grand Manan VE9GMI Repeater (146.955 -) is now available to the IRG system. The repeater is normally hard-linked to the South West Zone (including Pleasant Ridge and Maces Bay) when not linked to the entire system. Individual linking from zone to zone throughout the entire system is still being programmed, and we will provide updates as this progresses.
All IRG repeaters are now linked to the network, with the exception of Stanley VE9NRV. Due to site limitations, Stanley is not planned for network linking at this time, but operates as a stand-alone repeater.
