report on Rosh Pinah repeater

the coverage has been tested while i had to drive various routes

i triggered it just outside steinkopf just before the henkries turnoff and all the way along the road to vioolsdrift - partially coverage

from noordoewer towards aussenkehr i start triggering the repeater just outside noordoewer

the road to aus from rosh pinah - fully covered
the road to oranjemund and oranjemund - covered with a mobile antenna
the road from oranjemund to port nolloth - covered but as you get closer to port nolloth partially coverage

i did not test it in keetmanshoop but i know my other repeater on same site do work there as well as the road from keetmanshoop to noordoewer it has partially coverage

so yes when in this part of the country please feel free to use the repeater

tx 145.175 pl 88.5 and rx 145.775
if i can get registered at echolink i will connect repeater through but me and echolink eish another issue

D Star Repeater V53W is on the air !

Postby DL1ZU » Mon Feb 20, 2012 5:11 pm

Hi folks,
I found following news on Southgate Amateur Radio News:
D-Star in Namibia V53W

Hams in Windhoek, Namibia now have a D-Star repeater.
Thanks to the help of Jochen DL1YBL and Hans-Juergen DL5DI it was possible to get the D-Star repeater up and running.

The biggest challenge was a stable data conection to the internet and this was solved with a 3G HSUPA connection and the help of the biggest Cellular Provider in Namibia.

The Repeater will be moved to the high site as soon as I am satisfied that the repeater is performing corectly.

Please visit www.qsl.net/narl for more info

Congratulation to this big step into a new technology !!!
