KS-DMR is excited to announce the addition of the Logan 444.475 repeater to the network, and Terry (N0KOM) as the newest KS-DMR affiliate member! Logan was formerly an analog repeater on 442.300 with IRLP capability that was seeing very little use despite it’s generous coverage footprint, thus it was a good candidate for converting to DMR. The frequency change to 444.475 brings this repeater into the recently announced five channel plan.
The primary coverage area of this repeater includes Norton and Phillipsburg. Any appropriately licensed amateur operators with DMR radios are welcome to use the repeater and see what this mode has to offer.

Noticed your using an MSF5000 with Zimmerman stm-32 on Logan Repeater. I am currently or should I say, when I get around to it, going to be interfacing the same. I currently have the MSF5000 and pi-hat stm-32 v3 from Zimmerman. I started pulling signals from cabinet that I believe will work, just haven’t finished up/interfaced yet. Was wondering if you would share what you have for interfacing mmdvm, pi-star configuration and MSF configuration. Thanks for any assistance. Chris Curtis K2UWC

Unfortunately I knew this was going to be a one-off, and I didn’t document anything from this build. Programming the station is the same as with any analog repeater controller – set it up as a full duplex base, with repeat disabled.
The STM32 interface was soldered directly to test points or traces on the SCM. I did this one quick and dirty and then promptly forgot about it.
