I will no longer be updating this webpage about Digital Amateur Radio in Newfoundland. I have taken a posting with my company in Nova Scotia and will hand over any work i have done to the Avalon Radio Amateurs Club to continue bring Digital Amateur Radio to Newfoundland.
A few weeks ago the Brandmeister admins got together and have changed a few talkgroups around.
3026 which we know as Canada English is now Alberta
3027 which we know as Canada French is now British Colombia
previously 30261 and 30271 were used for those provinces, these provinces deserved a talkgroup like the rest of the provinces. all canada English traffic should move to 302 and all provincial traffic for Alberta and British Columbia should move to 3026 and 3027.
as with all other provincial talkgroups i will move them to Time Slot 2 on VO1UHF as soon as transitions have been made completely.
TG302( slot 1) Canada
TG3020(slot 1) Newfoundland & PEI
TG3021(slot 2) Nova Scotia
TG3024(slot 2) Manitoba
TG3025(slot 2) Saskatchewan TG3026(slot 1) Alberta , This TG use to be Canada English , it is now Alberta* TG3027(slot 2) British Colombia, This TG use to be Canada French, it is now BC
TG3028(slot 2) Northern Canada
TG3029(slot 2) New Brunswick
This morning myself and VO1OE put VO1UHF and VO1TZ back on the air.
VO1TZ use to be a D-Star stack of VHF,UHF and 1.2Ghz radios. These radios have been removed and stored.
VO1UHF has been put in place of VO1TZ UHF on 443.400+ and is now DMR and DSTAR
VO1TZ VHF 145.090+ ( 100hz RX Tone )has been replaced by a DR-1X and is now C4FM and Analogue.
We also upgraded the modem on site ( Thanks to Don a bell tech here in the City that managed to get us up and running without having the headache of tech support)
The coverage area of VO1UHF extends from RCAF road in St. John’s to Paradise and Mount Pearl.
The Coverage area of VO1TZ favours the West end of the city and drops off at Allendale road in St. John’s.
Eventually VO1TZ will have the Wires-X node attached to it for linking, however right now it is local only.
If you have a motorola radio that needs reprogramming please contact me.
