EI Digital Repeater Network on 2m & 70cms - Q4 2020

The amateur radio digital network of repeaters on the 2m & 70cms bands in Ireland is gradually changing and evolving and it is sometime hard to keep track of all the changes.

Steve Wright, EI5DD has very kindly put together an 'EI Digital Network Data Card' which makes things easier to follow.

The list of frequencies is shown below...

The one obvious gap in the EI Network is the lack of a digital repeater or gateway covering the Dublin area. It's an odd situation to be in as it might be expected that any new digital network would start in the capital Dublin and then spread out. It seems as if the opposite is happening.

For more information about amateur radio digital networks in Ireland, see this previous post.

I think there is a typo error in the repeater list .
EI2IPG frequencies shown as 145.7125 MHz and 145.1175 MHz. I think the latter should be
145.1125 MHz , ie standard 600kHz spacing .

Thanks for the correction Des, that's updated now.
