Hello,

I have not used D-Star with my D74A yet, but did notice the list in the radio.


I am planning to update the code plug in my XPR radios so I can use the NJ-NY-PA network on the way down.

I may end up taking three HTs (FT-1D for Fusion, XPR6550 UHF for DMR, and D74A for D-Star).

I'll bring my D74A.  It can use GPS to list nearby D-Star repeaters
based upon the installed list.  That might be interesting.

Thanks for the list, I'll probably add the DMR sites to an HT.

Hello,

I remember years ago bringing my HT with me when the SWLFest was in
Kulpsville. I was disappointed at the lack of repeaters in the area.
The
problem that I still run into is ham repeaters are listed by
location.
It is difficult to figure out if a location like Souderton is nearby
when you are not familiar with the area. One way I overcome the
problem
is to use Google Earth to map out the repeaters I am interested in
and
create a kmz file. I did this for repeaters around Plymouth Meeting.
It
turns out there are a few within a short distance. I also found some
repeaters listed as Philadelphia are actually sited in Roxborough,
so
they are closer than the city and even visible from the hotel.

Here is some information I gathered from local repeater group
websites.

W3QV The Phil-Mont Mobile Radio Club http://www.phil-mont.org/
      Roxborough 147.030 MHz offset +0.6 MHz CTCSS 91.5 is usually
linked
to 444.800 MHz offset +5.0 MHz CTCSS 186.2 full time
          There are also 2 Meter remote receivers in Center City
(Philadelphia), Lansdale, and Southampton.

W3WAN “The Wide Area Network Repeater System” or WANRS.
http://www.wanrepeater.net/
      Roxborough 441.700 MHz offset +5.0 MHz CTCSS 74.4
          This is part of a statewide system of linked repeaters.

WR3IRS The NJ-NY-PA DMR Network https://www.n2jti.net/home.html
      Roxborough 440.650 MHz offset +5.0 MHz CC1 DMR

W3SBE Philadelphia Broadcast Engineers Amateur Radio Club
      Roxborough 442.550 MHz offset +5.0 MHz CTCSS 91.5 is usually
linked
to 927.8875 MHz offset -25.0 MHz CTCSS 91.5 full time
          These repeaters maybe off the air as the group does not seem
to
be very active.

K3PDR Philadelphia Digital Radio Association https://www.k3pdr.org/
      Wyndmoor 146.610 MHz offset -0.6 MHz D-Star
      Wyndmoor 445.18125 MHz offset -5.0 MHz D-Star
      Wyndmoor 445.73125 MHz offset -5.0 MHz CC1 DMR
      Wyndmoor 447.475 MHz offset -5.0 MHz Fusion


KB3BKH Unisys Amateur Radio Club Bluebell
      Bluebell 447.025 MHz offset -5.0 MHz CTCSS 131.8
          Bluebell is a short distance north of Plymouth Meeting and
home
of some good Korean BBQ!

N3CB
      Norristown 448.675 offset -5.0 MHz CTCSS 131.8
