Delray DMR Repeater online / failure root-cause 15-AUG 2017
The Delray DMR repeater c/o W2GGI experienced a recent failure. The root cause was a circuit board that failed due to the constant use of North America (NA) on TS1. That timeslot (TS) has been replaced with Tri-State (NY-NJ-PA) and NA will be activated only by PPT. This change will cut down on constant usage of the amp and help ensure up-time. The hardware issue was resolved Monday 14-Aug 2017.
