M7YME station

Post by embleton » Mon Sep 25, 2023 6:24 am

DMR plus Anytone D-878UVii plus 2m/70cm portable transceiver 7W maximum power Staddiscombe station location 84m ASL IO70xi. The station came into operation on 27th September 2023.

The station conforms to license interference directives because I am using a commercial radio as above, running 7W and I've checked cross and out-of-band interference with the SDR upstairs. The antenna is a Diamond SRJ77 with 2.15dB gain for an ERP of 9W.

I am in the living room or the office in the house upstairs with the radio handheld transceiver, and the SDR receiver is in the office upstairs. The SDR receiver upstairs receives all the below stations showing a confirmed received signal. When downstairs in the house on the transceiver the signal is less strong and some of the stations below may be a little patchy, on occasion! DMR Plus is always received on a handheld Anytone transceiver via a hotspot and usually on TG 235. When programming the radio with the CPS don't forget to program a key PF1 to call talk groups by Dial on Demand for hotspot, etc.

When online Echolink M7YME Node ID 180309.

The SDR has a 2m 5/8 wavelength with a coil antenna in the window pointing east sitting on a tin monitoring the complete 2m ham band.

The DMR Plus transceiver has a 1/4 wavelength and 70cm 5/8 wavelength Diamond SRJ77 antenna.

My main interest in radio is the South West Cluster and digital mobile radio (DMR plus) on 70cm/2m. But do have my own hotspot which is usually on TG 235.
