RENEWAL - Notify the FRC that a repeater is active and is operating in compliance 

with its current coordination.

COORDINATION UPDATE - Update an existing coordination with changes that DO NOT  

affect the coverage area of the repeater (trustee, sponsor, contact information, repeater 

operating features or callsign, link and control frequencies or other repeaters linked to).

NEW COORDINATION or RE-COORDINATION - Apply for coordination of a new repeater, 

request a change of repeater frequency pair, or update an existing coordination with 

changes that affect the coverage area of the repeater (location, antenna height or effective 

radiated output power).

I will update the info on the above radio in the coming week. I now have the ability

to program the radio to the 2M Ham band. This radio will do the Ham 2M VHF

band and is P-25 capable. The radio is now working on the 2M Ham band. And

it works using P-25 great! I am very pleased with this mobile radio.

Oh, one last point. These radios are far less expensive than the Mother "M" radios I use. I

purchased the EF Johnson radios at the Melbourne Ham Fest this past October and I

am very impressed with the EF Johnson mobile & portable radios. If you want to get into

P-25 and enjoy the superior audio quality of Digital Communications, then the above 

radios would be a good place to start. Who knows, you might find some at the

Tampa Bay Ham Fest in Plant City this December or the Orlando HamCation in

February.

My newest Digital Radios arrived 9-Dec-13.

 

Kirisun S780 / FP460

400-470 MHz. Digital C4FM FDMA Radio

6.25 KHz. Digital

Kirisun website

My first impression of this FDMA dPMR radio:

I am very happy with the Kirisun S780 radio. It performs very well in WFM

mode. The Digital Mode audio is excellent! Programming is very straight forward.

I purchased two from 409shop.com in China. I paid less than $120.00 for each

radio. I also purchased the USB programming cable, although I really wanted the

serial cable as no drivers are required for serial. I did purchase a spare battery.

I will be ordering more of these radios. I will next inquire about a Kirisun

dPMR Mobile radio for the vehicle or desktop. These radios have the same features as DMR radios.

SMS (Short Message Service) and pre-defined messages that can be sent to

a targeted user, a group or all radios on the repeater. In DMR you can tell if

the recipient actually received your message. And the recipient will have

a message waiting on his radio. These radios will also allow if

programmed, Stun, Kill and Revive function.

.

I purchased two more Kirisun S780 dPMR radios in December from the

www.409shop.com with delivery time of 13 or 14 days.

CIDR

CIDR is the short for Classless Inter-Domain Routing, an IP addressing scheme 

that replaces the older system based on classes A, B, and C. A single IP address 

can be used to designate many unique IP addresses with CIDR. A CIDR IP 

address looks like a normal IP address except that it ends with a slash followed 

by a number, called the IP network prefix. CIDR addresses reduce the size of 

routing tables and make more IP addresses available within organizations.
