We had to change out the repeater at Peculiar, and without our knowledge, in the time since it was initially installed, Brandmeister put in place a requirement that even Motorola repeaters need a password. SO until be get a chance to get to the site (it takes a 4wD and a good seat belt), it will not be networked.
Wow what a crazy time 2020 was. Deepwater has returned to analog and will not be reverting back to DMR- EVER. MCI has moved to Trimble Missouri (just basically a little north of the old site) and we are pretty settled on what is where and do not anticipate any further growth from us.
I do want to state, we NEVER state the full, exact location of any of our repeaters. We have lost sites from other groups who went to where our system was and pissed of the property owner enough, trying to get on the property, that NEITHER of us had a site- yes had to remove the equipment. So we make it a rule- everything is “close”. If you cannot accept that (and some can’t), then feel free to use another groups system.
Also, Bob, Lee and myself are in the process of turning over the operation and equipment to some new blood. Eric, NØMIJ, James KBØNHX, and Travis NIØY, will be overseeing the operation soon. NONE of the rules, and standard we have in place will change. Also those who are “persona non-grata” will remain that way. So, in a nutshell, new people same game……chat soon…de KØXM

New year, new projects. Here is what is changed.
Deepwater is back to DMR. Windsor is back to analog. Deepwater codeplug is in the ala carte vault.
New repeaters on in Hermitage, and Joplin and Wichita (UHF and VHF) will be on line soon, if not already.
Status of the Excelsior Springs repeaters in unknown at this time, I need to speak with KØBSJ and get an update.
We will be acquiring MORE repeaters shortly, so expansion will continue.
