What are your specific questions?
I have a repeater on the P25NX network.

He did melt but now that is getting colder heeees baaaack. :)

Nothing from the new member though. Maybe he was hoping for an instant response/ Maybe he figured out his problem? Either way I have moved on.

In general how active is the p25nx network? I keep tossing around the idea of putting a repeater up on it around here, but don’t want it to be silent all the time.

It’s more active than some local repeaters in my major metro area.

And more of technical discussions and not the usual “I’m sitting in shitty traffic” banter.

Or someone sending out a call sign and then having to go...

It’s real. It’s decent ham radio.

Yeah... If you’re thinking about adding a machine to the network, I’d encourage it.

The more it grows, the better it’ll be.

And, unlike DMR and the other networked systems that anyone can get on with a shit cheap radio... At least this system requires some decent tech knowledge and a good quality Moto radio.

The system is monitored enough that we don’t put up with shit passing through the system. And everyone is quite respectful - and as I said, most of the conversations are about tech and what people are working on to grow the system or experiment with things on the network.

It’s some pretty good stuff.

There’s also a google group called P25NX. Worth a subscribe. There’s good info there.

Thanks! Checking out the group now, and keeping an eye out for parts to start accumulating.
