OPERATIONAL STATUS:

OFF THE AIR DUE TO AN ANTENNA/LINE FAILURE! 

On March 25th, 2017, it was discovered that the D-Star repeater was operating into a defective antenna and/or feed line. To prevent damage to the reepater itself, the D-Star system was shut down until the reflected power problem can be resolved. 


The KM4JXA D-STAR repeater is located on Bluff Mountain (Greentop) in Sevier County, Tennessee. It shares the site with the WB4GBI 146.940, 444.300, 927.0625, and the 440.575 DMR repeater. 

WHAT IS DSTAR?  

This article is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The KM4JXA callsign is licensed to the East Tennessee Digital Radio Group, trustee WB4GBI. Due to the necessity to have a separate callsign for the D-Star repeater, the ETDRG was formed.

The KM4JXA D-Star repeater operates on a non 600 Khz offest frequency of 147.44 receive (mobile transmit), 144.94 transmit (mobile receive). This combination of frequencies is now specifically assigned for D-Star usage by SERA, of which KM4JXA/WB4GBI is a member. The KM4JXA repeater is also now included in database downloads from the D-Star information website, www.dstarinfo.com

The three tuned cavities for receiver filtering are to the left of the D-Star cabinet.
