New repeater added to the FM38 collective!

We have just finished upgrading the Iola 443.600+ (114.8) repeater.

This system is owned by Chuck AC9F and Brian KB9ZPK. They expressed an interest in linking to the FM38 network so we spent some time installing an AllStar interface into the donor Motorola repeater.

Hardware consists of a Raspberry Pi computer, DMK Engineering USB Radio Interface, CAT200 controller and MSF5000 repeater.
