Linked Repeater System

"Covering the Garden State from Atlantic City to New York City to Philadelphia"

 

 

 

 

OVERVIEW:

It all started in 1995 with the desire to have continuous repeater coverage between northern New Jersey and the southern New Jersey shore area. What began as a small one-man project with three linked sites, mainly covering the Garden State Parkway, has evolved into a statewide system. The system has been fueled by three fundamental principles: interest in radio propagation/repeater technology,  the desire to have uninterrupted radio coverage while traveling the major corridors, and keeping the 70cm band active.

The NJ Linked Repeater Association (W2NJR) currently provides coverage throughout the Atlantic City - New York City - Philadelphia area triangle. The majority of the system is owned and maintained by K2CB. In addition, we are affiliated with the Tri County Radio Association's W2LI repeater. Additional repeater owners are welcome to join our growing system - contact us!

The system is open for use by all licensed amateurs. There are no dues, and no formal meetings. However, the users often get together for coffee breaks now and then as time permits. Please feel free to join us sometime!

Some of the sites listed above have pictures available, which may be accessed by clicking on the site name. If  you are curious as to how the nuts and bolts go together to make the system work, check out this simple network diagram.

 

ECHOLINK:

The repeater network is accessible via ECHOLINK. The network's node is listed on the ECHOLINK servers as W2NJR-R, or repeater node number 21005. Repeater users may access other Echolink user, link, repeater, and conference nodes by sending standard DTMF control commands over-the-air. The command list is also available in PDF format. For a brief tutorial on using the ECHOLINK system, check out the tour of Echolink page.

 

INTERNET REPEATER LINKING PROJECT:

The repeater network is also accessible via IRLP. The network's node is listed on the IRLP servers as W2NJR, or node number 4935. Repeater users may access other IRLP nodes by sending standard DTMF control commands over-the-air. The command list is also available in PDF format. For more information, check out the IRLP guideline page.

 

WIRES:

The repeater network is accessible via the WIRES system. The network's node ID is 1119D. For more information on the WIRES system, check out the WIRES user guide page.

USAGE:

There are no dues and the repeaters are open to all licensed amateurs. All the owners ask is that users practice proper amateur operating procedures. During heavy usage periods (drive time, etc) we ask that priority is given to mobile operators. In addition, it is asked that casual users yield to the scheduled nets as needed.

If you would like to run a net on the system, please feel free to contact K2CB regarding usage of the system. Be sure to check back often for an up-to-date listing of current nets as it develops.

 

DONATIONS:

Occasionally, we may hold "fund drives" for special projects or major repairs. Donations are not solicited, but graciously accepted. Donations may be sent via PayPal to w2njr@comcast.net, or to the W2NJR callbook address via the US Postal Service.

Thanks to the following recent supporters for their generous contributions:

K2NNN, KD2AAR, K2SDR, W2KSO

 

RECENT ACTIVITY:

In addition, a NOAA Weather Radio SAME alert receiver has been added to the system. Thanks to K2IYE of www.cheapham.com , who graciously donated the CAT WX200 weather receiver. Please show your appreciation of his generous donation by visiting www.cheapham.com for your ham radio related needs. 

 

CURRENT PLANS:

Current plans include the installation of a new Camden NJ repeater, and various performance enhancements to the existing repeaters.

 

FUTURE PLANS:

We are always looking to improve the coverage area of the network. Currently we are looking for sites in Atlantic, Cape May, Burlington, and Camden Counties to restore coverage to those areas. If you or someone you know has a good site available, or is interested in adding their repeater to our network, feel free to contact us.
