New D-Star Repeater at the Rogue Valley Manor

D_STAR_EU 004_0001 (2)


This is from Bill Anderson of the Rogue Valley Manor Amateur Radio Club (RVMARC):

“The Rogue Valley Manor has installed a new DSTAR repeater system, KG7FOJ operating on mode “B”, on 444.650 Mhz (no PL). This repeater is operational and open for use by the local hams. It is not yet connected to the internet gateway but will be during the first quarter of 2014. This installation will include a “full stack” of equipment from ICOM with both voice and data (on 1.2Ghz) capabilities. We’ve installed the 1.2Ghz, 70cm and 2 meter modules but have only activated the 70 cm unit. Antennas have yet to be installed on the “A” and “C” mode frequencies. ORRC is coordinating the frequencies being used. B station only on 443.775 Mhz with a Gateway connection. This is the second repeater in the Rogue Valley. KE7MVI operates a node.”

The Rogue Valley Amateur Radio Club (RVARC) will have a presentation on D-Star technology at one of its regular forthcoming meetings: first Thursday of each month, 7:00-9:00, at the Red Cross Building on Hawthorn Street in Medford.

  • For and update on the Manor DStar System…. March 3, 2014 from W9PCi

    The 1.2GHz (23cm) DD (Digital Data SIMPLEX: 1248.500) high speed data mode and Digital Voice module is operational on TX: 1293.125 RX: 1273.125. For 23 cm, set your radio to transmit on 1273.125 and receive on 1293.125. The repeater frequencies are just opposite of your radio settings which would be 1293.125- with a 20mhz offset for transmit..

    The “B” module is UHF and on 444.650+ with a 5mhz offset.

    The G/W to the Internet and DStar Reflector network is functional on the 23cm “A” module. We are working a problem accessing the Reflectors with the “B” module (UHF) but should have that fixed soon.

    Our “C” module is programmed but needs a duplexer and antenna to complete operation on 146.610- with a 0.600mhz offset.

    We encourage everyone to try out the new system. Send us an email and tell us how it works for you (email:

    Enjoy radio,
