G.A.S. is not required (but appreciated) It is part of the Piedmont
Repeater Network (PRN)
repeater is located off Scott Rd. just near Lee's Chapel Rd, in
Northeast Greensboro in the Browns Summit community. The antenna
is at approximately 310 feet.
The repeater is the latest technology Motorola SLR5700.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE DMR REPEATER & DATA BELOW:
On demand activates a talkgroup when users request - Key it up and
release - the connection continues for 15 minutes after the end
of transmissions or when the "Clear Timeslot" is activated.
When you finish your QSO use the "Clear Timeslot" to clear
The Time Slot you were using.
The PRN Talkgroup is NOT for a long QSO - it is a "calling
channel" - keep QSOs brief or QSY your party off to a Chat
1 or Chat 2 TG. If your party is on the same repeater, go to that
repeater's LOCAL. When
you go to another TG, PLEASE listen once you have keyed it
to activate, BEFORE you transmit.
DO NOT USE Chat 1 or 2 if you are both on the SAME repeater
USE LOCAL only !!
Repeaters in the PRN system, the "Local TG" should
have priority usage of Timeslot 1. While we understand, appreciate,
and respect the desire to work other stations outside the primary
PRN footprint via TGs TAC 310 and TAC 1, locals should have priority
given then probability of more traffic and more users in the repeater(s)
defined area. As a PRN/DMR repeater user, please be aware of other
traffic - activity on the repeater or Timeslot. Use "Monitor
All" or observe the busy light on your radio before you transmit.

If you are concerned about your audio or to check to see if you
are getting into a specific repeater - use the Echotest function.
Most all repeaters in the PRN systen are programmed alike.
The Local of Browns Summit, King, Graham and Lexington are tied
together - so when you are on one you will be on four locals at
the same time.

The new Baofeng DM-5R is a Tier 1 radio only. This radio
WILL NOT WORK on any DMR amateur radio repeaters at all.
The repeaters used by DMR-MARC, Brandmeister and stand alone repeaters,
including those in the PRN system, are all Tier II repeaters. If
you try and use the Baofeng DM-5R on any DMR amateur radio repeater
you WILL tie up both time slots. This is a sure way to make enemies
on DMR in a hurry. No lower tier radios BELOW the
MD380s / MD390s and CS700/750s are allowed on our system. Radios
by Motorola, Tyteria MD380, MD390; Connect Systems radios are Tier
II radios and all Okay. If you have any doubts, please ASK before
REPEATER NETS (More will be added as we are informed)
