The WA7GSK repeater is located on Lower Deer Point 15 miles North of Boise, Idaho at 6500 feet elevation. The repeater is a Motorola XPR8400 at 40 watts with a 6db antenna at 60 ft AGL.
This is an open repeater on the BrandMeister worldwide network. The repeater has both time slots linked to Brandmeister Master 3103 in San Jose, California.
The only Static Talk Group (TG) programmed is TG 3116, Idaho Statewide. This Talk Group will be routed to the repeater any time there is activity and broadcast whether anyone has requested it or not. All other Talk Groups are Dynamic.
In programming radios all Talk Groups should be sent to Time Slot (TS) 1 except TG2, Local and TG3116, Idaho Statewide should be sent to TS2. TS2 should only be used for Local and Statewide so it stays as free as possible for that traffic. The Local TG2 is designated at the Master Site to be Local only and will only bring up the Local Repeater. As a result it is not available from the Network.
You are welcome to use any of the BrandMeister Talk Groups that are programmed into the Master Site as long as you use the Time Slot information in the preceeding paragraph.
