I’ve heard comments about an area DMR group with XPR8300s that have PA’s so questionable the sysops yell at people for using them. And others continue to struggle with the performance of the Yaesu DR series repeaters.
Not KS-DMR. In the last few months, since combining the might of K0USY and NV8Q, we’ve replaced all of our XPR series, most of our Yaesu DR-1Xs and several systems made from similar quality gear with public safety grade Motorola MTR2000s and GE/Harris MASTR IIIs. The rest will be replaced in the coming months, and more systems will be deployed. Here’s a photo of just the Lawrence depot’s inventory of repeaters ready to go.
