Welcome to the KB8KGU Repeater information page. The repeater is currently OFFLINE and UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Once it is complete, the repeater will be open to all licensed amateur radio operators.
We are in the process of rebuilding bigger and better!
The new incarnation of the repeater will be based on a Kenwood TKR-850 system with a digital voice modem interface board running on a Raspberry Pi. This will enable digital modes such as DMR, D-Star, Fusion, and possibly future modes.
Much work needs to be done over the next few months to get the system tweaked and up and running. The repeater will be located in Osage Beach near the public library.
The repeater may possibly be able to support both FM analog and digital modes together. Like with all projects, there will be a lot of learning along the way, but it will be a fun project.
Thanks to the Lake of the Ozarks Amateur Radio Club and their members for supporting the project!
