W5DRA is located in Clinton, Mississippi, with an avarage range of about 23 miles from clinton, on 147.380+

Set RPT1 for (W5DRA  C) and RPT2 (W5DRA  G)

The gateway is made of a Raspberry Pi-2, Running G2 Link and has a dashboard, which can be viewed at:


As for module B, as of now, it is basically a Crossband repeat for the module C. Set you frequency to: 441.8125+ and be sure to set the (RPT1 to: W5DRA  C) and (RPT2 to: W5DRA  G), so your signal would go through the gateway, if you want. But for local conversation, this is not needed. you can just simply put the 441.8125+ in to your Dstar radio and you will be heard on the 147.380+ and vise versa


All are welcome to use the repeater at any time and please feel free to link to where-ever you like.

You can also see your self live, while talking on the repater at:

By the way, the picture shown is the Gateway.

Module C is running on DVRPTR and Module B is running on Moancom board 

 running G2 link on Raspberry Pi 2 Model B

This is the Gateway setup at my house. Im about 10 miles from the repeater.



This is the CrossBand repeat that I use for module B. The top radio is tx/rx on the VHF and the two bottom radios are UHF radios, in which are connected to a small duplexer, which is under the circuit boards. This setup allows the UHF setup to act as a repeater and whatever happens on the vhf side, comes into the uhf side and vise versa. With this setup, you can hear the folks on the UHF side, while they are transmitting. When you crossband, you usually only hear one side of the conversation, but with this set up, you can hear both sides. 


This is a closeup view of the circuit board that connects all three radios together. You can find the schematics on the Dstar experimental and or the quadnet group, under their file section.


This is the two motorola radios, which is the W5DRA-C. They are connected via a DRC board from Advanced Repeater system. (Its in that small black box on the floor) www.arsrepeaters.com
