I’ve written a few posts on this blog about which repeaters I frequent in the DFW area, and which ones I am monitoring. This post will be an update to some of that information.
Lately, I spend most of my time on DMR. I am constantly talking to other Hams on the DFW Local (TG2) or Texas Statewide (TG3148) talkgroups. But I have 3 other radios in the truck at this time, besides my DMR radio. I recently installed an Icom IC7000 and I am using that rig on VHF/UHF right now. I have a High Sierra screwdriver antenna that I am going to install for Mobile HF work. Also I am running a Wouxun KG-UV920P with 2M/220, but only using it for 220MHz right now. The last radio is a Kenwood TK-981 for 900MHz, but I actually don’t have it hooked up to anything right now – no power or antenna.
I recently re-programmed my VHF/UHF radio to include about 15 or 16 local repeaters, then I used slots 20-30 for the NCTC repeaters throughout Texas, and input all of those. Listed below are the repeaters that I have in the top 15 channels of my radio, which are constantly scanning (unless I am talking on one).
