History of the K4FAU repeater: (with K4FAU):
In July 2006 the Siemens Amateur Radio Club KF4DXY gave their 444.925 repeater in permanent care of our club. The repeater needed some maintenance and the controller needed to be replaced.
Instead of spending money on a new controller the K4FAU club decided to buy an IRLP Embedded controller. The IRLP Embedded controller can be setup as a repeater controller with the added benefit of IRLP and EchoLink support.
In May 2007 The Siemens ARC donated the repeater to K4FAU making it the sole responsibility of the FAU ARC.
10/19/2007 The repeater's TRX was replaced by 2 Icom IC-F221S radio's.
01/24/2008 W4RIS - Updated the radio's programming and adjusted the audio levels of the repeater.
