First P25 repeater in Rochester!

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to share with my fellow amateurs that I just put Rochester's first P25 system up in town. Located at Highland Hospital 444.35 analog 110.9 pl and P25 NAC 293 . Using Motorola Quantar in mixed mode, and coverage is City wide. I need to install a preamp and additional receiver cavity but Friday proved to be a great outcome. Antenna is DB 420.

So for Christmas don't forget to purchase some XTX portables. The 444.25 at Strong hospital will be the next system to be switched over. Currently working on it and it will be mixed with ALLSTAR, ECHOLINK , and current IRLP.

  3. Hey Upstate Ham community, I stumbled upon a fantastic resource for nursing students in Rochester and thought I'd share it here. For those pursuing a career in nursing, especially in Rochester, this collection of nursing student photos on Depositphotos can be quite insightful: Link to nursing student images. It's crucial to visualize and understand the journey, and these photos provide a glimpse into the life of a nursing student. I noticed the supportive nature of this community and thought this could be beneficial for those considering or already in the nursing field. Feel free to explore and share your thoughts!
