MSCG repeater connected to W8IRA system, Allstar link
Note on IRA link audio: We have full quieting signals between all links except between Grand Rapids and Big Rapids. This link can become noisy or drop out during summer afternoons. For this reason, any signals originating in Big Rapids or north is repeated back from Big Rapids, along with being sent to Grand Rapids. This results in good audio going to the northern links that originates in the northern links.
Signals coming from Grand Rapids going to Big Rapids and north may become noisy, depending on propagation. Likewise, signals coming from Big Rapids to Grand Rapids have the same problem. Keep in mind any Allstar or Echolink connections enter our system in Grand Rapids, and are subject to this same problem on the northern links.
We are also starting to enable each location repeater to repeat it’s local audio without going through the entire link system. It will still send the received audio to the entire link system, but local audio with have the best quality. At this time, Big Rapids and Mt Pleasant both have this enabled.
