RARC club repeater

Richmond’s first digital voice repeater went on the air on January 28, 2008 when the W4FJ analog repeater on 147.255 MHz was taken off the air, and an Icom D Star repeater was installed. On VHF, we feed a Decibel Products DB 224 that was donated to the Club. In 2010, a UHF module with an output of 443.7125 MHz was added feeding a DB 420 antenna that was donated to the Club by the RATS organization. In October 2013, we installed a digital voice module on 1284.0000 MHz with a – 20 MHz split. The repeater antennas are located 320 feet above average terrain, three blocks from the State Capitol in downtown Richmond. The repeaters are gateway connected.

The RARC D Star net meets Wednesday nights at 8:00pm when all three modules are linked to Reflector 062D. Please join us, and in the meantime, enjoy the areas only D Star repeaters.
