The BRATS successfully deployed our first Yaesu DR-1X digital for our 443.350 standalone repeater. The DR-1X supports traditional FM voice, as well as Yaesu's new digital C4FM mode. The 443.350 repeater will operate in "full auto" mode, transmitting digital out when a user transmits it, and analog out otherwise.
Additionally, we upgraded the battery for both the standalone machine, and our linked repeater receive equipment, providing several more hours of backup.
Thank you very much to K0RYX and KB3SKN for their time and efforts in helping bring digital voice to Baltimore!
