National System 9875 and 710 2m repeaters now back on . Work on 11kV TX pole continues Update 29Dec
Updated 28 Feb 2024 . Due to the recent fire at Marley's Hill Christchurch , and the loss of electricity , antenna pole antennas and feeders , there is no local or linking for the National System in and out of Christchurch . Users should consider the 70cm AREC DMR linked network as an alternative !!
Pirates please do NOT engage conversation with the Pirates or discuss Pirate activity over the National System , they are listening too and just makes them more active ! Use email , sms , phone calls or the Nationwide DMR ZL Trbo network to discuss activity !
Please note during Covid restrictions , repeater site visits may not be possible in some circumstances .
Please note : info for each site or region is updated when the local trustees provide us with info . Unfortunately this often does not happen . Each area will be updated when info is received from Trustees or the Branch .
Please avoid the use of the National System for local chatter , move to a local repeater or simplex if possible . It holds the whole country on , not just your local repeater .
National System usage guide.
Please make sure minimum of 3 second gaps between overs . At busy times 5 seconds is recommended.
Key up delay from the Far North to the Far South is several mS so the gaps are very important so others can access if required . Please limit conversation to a max of 20 mins and if possible move to simplex or a local repeater . A conversation on your local national system repeater activates the whole system nation wide .
