WA8BRO

  


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  May 12, 2019

Check out the new Information of the new BRO II  XLX625 Reflector Page




FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  April 17, 2019


WA8BRO has successfully launched their second Linux Gateway.

This gateway is hosting the new REF089 Reflector.  It Is housed in a different 

commercial location from the WA8BRO repeater Site.  This was done for security 

reasons and redundancy of the internet connection.  

The reflector gateway is running from a commercial internet account.


REF089A will be reserved for ARES, SKYWARN and Michigan Emergency

Communications only.  We will be offering this to this to the Michigan ARES group as 

a backup to 24A.


REF089C will be used for Metro Detroit and Southeastern Michigan General Use.


Modules REF089B, D and E will be utilized at a future time.


At this time the WA8BRO repeater links will be as follows;

The WA8BRO repeater is linked to our Metro Detroit/ Southeast Michigan

Reflector REF089C ( http://ref089.dstargateway.org ) 24/7 with the exception of the 24A 

Michigan ARES Net;

7:55PM-8:45PM Linked to 24A Monday for the Michigan ARES Net


Currently WA8BRO, K8DXA and W8LAP have full time links to REF089


We wish to extend many thanks to Terry N8LN and Brian NJ6N

For their support and guidance during this process.




Sincerely – The WA8BRO Team - K8NET, W8WAC, WW2MI and KA8WYN
