BREVARD COUNTY D-STAR AMATEUR RADIO EMERGENCY SERVICES
Brevard County D-STAR KJ4OXT Repeater will be installed at Parrish Medical Center soon
D-STAR (Digital Smart Technology for Amateur Radio) is an open standard developed by the Japanese Amateur Radio League (JARL) over three years and published in 2001 that incorporates the use of digital technology in the transmission of signals between radios or repeaters.
This repeater is located on US1 & Parrish Rd at the Parrish Medical Center at 200 ft AMSL, Titusville, Florida. The repeater frequency is presently set at 147.045 with a positive offset.
This repeater can only accessed with a D-STAR digital radio. Analog FM radios without D-STAR capability will not work.
A new Icom IC-IDRP2C D-STAR repeater controller and the Icom IC-IDRP2000V D-STAR 2 Meter repeater was orginally installed at King St. in Cocoa FL.
It will have a LINUX base gateway that is connected via fiber to the Bright house Network backbone at that time.
The Internet Gateway:
The Internet Gateway is a Linux system, running version 2 of the Icom D-STAR Gateway software. This gateway allows the repeater to communicate with other D-STAR repeaters around the world via the Internet. While the repeater is open for everyone to use for a local QSO, your call must be added to the access list to use the gateway.
To register with the gateway, connect to the registration page not available at this time and register as a new user. Once your registration is approved, you will receive instructions for creating a terminal identifier, only register one time.
The Internet gateway provides another service. You may view a list of the last heard users at on the KJ4OXT Dashboard.
To view the list of all D-STAR users go to this site, it is very busy at times and may not respond quickly.
I would like to thank Ray Kassis, N4LEM for the tower space and the space to house this equipment at a central location in Brevard County.
