Saturday, November 1st, the Sumter DMR repeater was placed on the air. The repeater is operating on 442.3125+ and local talk group 27510.
Tuesday, November 4th Greenwood 443.8375+ local talk group 27511 came on line.
Wednesday, November 12th Florence 442.1625 + local talk group 27512 came on line.
Most of the DMR repeaters in SC have their local talk group linked for a
temporary period while the system is being tested. The DMR PRN repeaters that
do not have their local channels linked via the C-bridge are: Dillon,
Greenville, Walhala and Aiken. Dillon local isn’t linked because it covers a
large geographic area, Greenville does not currently have an Internet
connections (so they are operating as a stand alone repeaters) and Aiken has a
different talk group set up on time slot 1. The temporary statewide link for
the local talk group will be going away in a few weeks. You will not have to
reprogram your radios for this change.
Work is ongoing to link Greenville (Caesar’s Head) into the network. Currently it is operating stand
alone. Since we can’t get a DSL connection at the site, a Microwave RF connection is
necessary. Weather permitting, that should happen in the next few
Also in the next few weeks there will be a SCHEART DMR web page
available to help users get updated information about the system. Right now
DMR repeaters and users can be found at http://dmr-marc.net/
SC HEART DMR is sponsored by SC ETV and the system is engineered, maintained and managed by SC ETV. In the very near future SC HEART DMR will have its’ own web page, for now follow the growth of this system here.
