The N0AGI-1 APRS Digi/iGate
Earlier this week Wednesday, Jun 8th 2016, in partnership w/ The Honorable Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, KA0PHD – Sgt. Hall and KC0OUZ – Adam, I moved my N0AGI-5 Digi/iGate over to the Medina site that also hosts my N0AGI-MED DMR Repeater System. The new call sign for the APRS station is N0AGI-1.
The Medina site boasts a 450 feet tower and the VHF antenna that’s being used for the N0AGI-1 station is at 380 feet. The following are a few screen shots and coverage map reports as of this am – June 11, 2016 7.00am CST.
