The Republic of Texas Repeater System

It's a Science...

It's an Art...

It's a Hobby...

Fraternity, engineering, and fun

We design and build repeater and remote base systems on HF, VHF Low Band, VHF Hi Band, and UHF.

Each repeater utilizes Motorola RF equipment, a band-pass band-reject duplexer, and an SCOM 7330 repeater controller.

Remote Base radios utilized are manufactured by Motorola, Kenwood, and Yaesu.

The audio paths throughout the system allow for consistent flat audio pathing, so frequency response and audio levels can be adjusted for multipoint to multipoint audio path consistency.

If you are outside of the area, and the 10 meter band is open, don't hesitate to stop by and say "Howdy" !

Network Connectivity

The system of linked repeaters utilizes RF and RoIP links for interconnection.

Baseline (Normal) inter-site connection configuration:  All repeaters on the system core backbone remain connected, unless they are pulled off the network for maintenance or special utilization.

Individual Repeater and Remote Base Sites

Each individual repeater site has the capability of connecting to various remote bases and links on our backbone. One of the remote base locations utilizes a Yaesu FT-857D all-band, all-mode transceiver radio that can be controlled remotely for frequency agility, mode agility, and offset agility.
