This is the new DSTAR Repeater Stack for Walton County ARES located at the EOC Operated by Walton County EARS – N4EMA. We hope to have the new N4EMA DStar Repeaters on the air this weekend. There is still lots to do to complete this project. In the end we’ll have a great system to assist our served agencies with EMComm when needed.
Special thanks to Jeff Goldburg at the Walton County Emergency Management for securing the grant to fund this system.
Special thanks to Sharon Joyce – KJ4TPQ for all the admin work on the gateway, Rebuilding the computer system and rescuing the registrants orphaned by the lightning strike that took out the previous WF4X stack in Freeport.

Update on the D-STAR stack.
We got the VHF machine on the air. Still no Gateway or UHF machine. But, it’s a start.
Big thanks to Rory K4CCK and William KM4UFW for helping figure out the programming.
