Re: ASTRO Ham Band Repeaters (NATIONWIDE LIST)

If you're up in the Barrie/Collingwood area then you'll have coverage on VA3IMB on 147.2850Mhz (156.7hz/NAC 293) but that's generally from Newmarket and above with a mobile. With the number of guys in the Toronto area with P25 gear, I'm surprised nobody has bothered yet. There is a P25 UHF repeater...

Heres how I see it with encryption... In Ontario, there is only a handful of people who have an Astro digital capable radio, who are amateurs, most if not all of them already have encryption modules in their radios, and finally most of them also know someone with a key loader.

I'm an Astro guy, but I have started to get interested in DStar, if the price dropped and there were more DStar repeaters on the air (right now we're tied 1 for 1 with Astro and DStar repeaters) I would probably take a leap and get one to try.

Astro Spectra W9 VHF & 800MHz CPG

I'm currently looking for a code plug for a W9 VHF high split radio and a W9 800MHz radio. I would prefer a whore flash at the current time if someone has it.

If you have one and are nice enough to let me have a copy, It would be greatly appreciated.
