KE8O repeater changes

Gary, KE8O made some changes on his system fusion repeater in Delaware.

Just want to let C4FM/Fusion users know that the 443.550 repeater here in Delaware now defaults / returns into the Central-Ohio-Lnk room when not linked into other C4FM/Fusion Repeaters or Rooms. When connected to the Central-Ohio-Lnk it is connected with two other Fusion repeaters here in Central Ohio providing a nice coverage area.
Stoutsville - 443.0625
Columbus - 444.100
You are encouraged to move the 443.550 into other Fusion rooms like America Link, MNwis, etc. When you disconnect from another place the repeater will automatically return to Central-Ohio-Lnk after about 30 seconds.

Additionally, I have installed some scripts so the 443.550 will automatically connect into the MNWis Net at 8:15pm on Monday night, and into the America Link net on Saturday night at 8:30pm.

As always enjoy and have fun in the digital world !

…Gary, KE8O

Jamboree On The Air 2017

We had a great time at Camp Lazarus in Delaware, OH operating the JOTA station. We were able to get a lot of scouts talking on the air. Arlin's, KD8EVR portable DMR repeater provided the scouts the opportunity to connect with others scouts on the JOTA talk group from all over including Ireland, the UK, and other states. Arnal, N9ACC did agreat job working with the scouts on the HF radio. Bob, W8NVN from Madison County made a great looking display and helped scouts with the morse code keyers. Josh, KB8YQS and his son Joe, KE8JOE did great getting scouts talking to eachother on HTs. Joe, KE8JOE also made a lot of contacts on the DMR radio and helped with the DMR radio. He was doing great for being 10 and licensed earlier this year.  Dennis, KE8HDE did a great job talking about the hobby with the scouts and provided the Pop-Up canapoies and tables.
