Written by Alfredo A. Rios C..

I am happy to informed you that we just install a new repeater in El Murazo, Dominican Republic. on 146.850 MHz -600 T 100.0 and it is linked to IRLP node # 7816 incrementing the total coverage of the entire Northern  cost of the Dominican Republic. We currently have confirmed coverage from Jimani at the western tip of the Dominican Territory to the cost line of Higuey at the eastern tip of the country, and from Dajabon on the North-western part of the country to Higuey, that is a very long distance and territory with coverage.

This is part of the expansion of the repeater system of HI8CR, that hope to cover the entire country with IRLP coverage as well as the APRS systems, which we install a Digipeater for APRS in the same location covering the area via 144.390 Mhz with the path Wide1-1,WIDE2-1 for everyone's use.

I hope that you all enjoy the used of the system as much as I have enjoyed planning it and putting it together. 73's and Happy Contacts. Alfredo, HI8CR.

Welcome to my Website.

I have been involved with Radio Communication since 1979, when I first got a CB Radio with 23 channels, I was hook since then, I just thought that was the greatest thing in the world and made contact all over with the Radio, it was so long ago that I do not even remember the brand of the radio but i think that it was Realistic, but I am not sure.

I have been a license Ham Operator since 1980, my first callsing was HI8ART as a technician, then after a log time operating that callsing I went for my General license in 1998, and I have had that call since then, I am now up for a reclassification of my license and could get just one letter.
