Marysville Demo DMR repeater UP and operational for Trunkfest !

The demo DMR repeater has been setup and installed at Station 720. It is operating in dual mode and will work with both Analog and Digital radios.
It requires a 100 Hz CTCSS encode tone on the radio to be set. The repeater does not transmit a 100 Hz CTCSS tone so tone squelch or decode tone will not work with it in analog mode.  It has been added to the Ohio codeplug on http://arrl-ohio.org/digital/digital.html
