There have been a number of changes to some of our
Wildrose Network. Please see WRN Repeaters for updates
and changes. Also check Dennis's
PDF file for a complete list of updates.
note that some hams have been using the VE6WRN-C module to
link to reflectors and leaving them turned on. The
C-Band is mostly used for local activity and we don't want
to occupy reflectors with local traffic. Your welcome
to use either the A or B modules to do your linking and
please rememebr to unlink when done.
If your looking for infoirmation and files for the
new Icom 51A Plus2 and ID-4100 mobile they can all be found in
the Wildrose support section. Any new files or
information I find will be added to the support section.
The newly released radios from ICOM have several
exciting new features. Those features are enabled by and
require G3 Gateway registration. Those new features will be
enabled as soon as the Gateways convert to G3, which will then
allow users to register another Terminal ID, as an “Access
Point”. Until those conversions occur, the radios are
functional as normal D-STAR user radios.
Please note that VE6WRE repeater has
been successfully converted to G3. Dale VE6CPK has put a lot
of hours into getting this completed. Testing is
underway and once completed VE6WRN will also get the
upgrade. Stay tune as we once again test the new
frontiers of ham radio. .
VE3EI recently passed away and our group will surely
miss him. Eric helped us get the first privately owned
DStar repeater up in Canada in early 2007 when DStar was just
getting off the ground. Mike VE6AMC and myself Dale
VE6CPK flew to Toronto to take the required course that Eric
provided and approved us for the first private Dtar repeater
and gateway to operate in Canada. See CARDS.
Eric helped us many times over the years with updates and new
gateway repeaters. Let's hope DStar will continue to
grow here in Canada without you Eric, you will be
missed. See Eric.
Here is a PDF
file explaing the use of elecronic devices in your
vehicle for distracted driving in British Columbia.
(Dennis VE6BGZ) Just when you thought it was safe
to go back into the water, ICOM has just announce their latest
radio. The ID-4100A. Please see the attached ICOM
brochure and RigPix.This
radio apparently is the mobile compliment to the
ID-51A-Plus2. No price or available date.
While it was nice to have the DStar repeater (VE6WRT)
up and running on Hailstone Butte for a short time, today it
was decided to turn it off as the voltage was not
holding. Watch for status updates as we approach spring.
Jan.20.17 Here is a PDF file explaning the

available hardware and its uses. This PDF file comes to
