Awaiting a replacement MMDVM board. It is hoped that this will become active mid October. The Callsign will be EI2DOD operating on 145.825 MHz.

Galway Echolink Gateway - EI4GCG

This project has been inoperable for sometime. It was on air but the internet connection was intermittent and it was suspected that the cable to the antenna had water ingress. Whilst the replacement Raspberry Pi is available and the new length of cable is also available nothing to report so far about the actual time that work will be carried out on this device.

APRS Digipeater - EI2AKP

This has been running since the repeater was placed on site at Abbeyknockmoy. To date there is little eveidence that it is forwarding information from mobiles. It would appear that it is insensitive and may be suffering from desnse from equipment on site. Further work needs to be carried out on this device.
