Parkridge & Tower Considerations

I have a wiresX node running on dedicated equipment. I've been powering down the server and radio until the weekend but if others re interested in the WiresX system I can start leaving it up all day. Eventually build a tower or rent tower space for it. .. brings me to my next question.. Anyone know how we can rent tower use? About how much should I expect to pay?

@N0JKR Wiresx has always sounded cool to me. I hadn't known anyone else playing with it and that fact has been the drawback for me. Maybe now that I know someone playing with it, I can get my hands dirty a learn a little about that system.

It would be nice if we had someplace we could put things like this up actually. Parkridge seems so unattainable to me.

I've got an AllStarlink node with Echolink running for the group... So I feel ya. I'm running mine from home. It isn't the ideal setup to be a gateway for the repeater remotely instead of installing these add-ons functionalities to the repeater directly.

As far as helping, get with @KM6IOE Calvin

Well as you may know I am long on towers . I will put mine up sooner if someone wants to put something like fusion up their ,just thinking out loud.
Hi Calvin, did you get that tower up? You game for hosting a wires-x setup? Not sure how it would work in terms of managing it. I assume you could do that locally if you had the equipment?

No luck yet! I just got my new amplifier up and running but no luck on the tower. Honestly it will most likely not happen til mid summer.

If you do get fusion up and running let me know what the connection is and I will test it out.

It's up, just doubtful there is any reach on the antenna. I sent the info a bit ago in email.

Great, sounds like we have some interest for System Fusion / Wires-X in addition to the DMR modes. I move we ask the membership to take up this discussion. Wires-X and DMR additions to our club repeaters. Let's get this going.

Any luck with this where do we go from here? Wait for a meeting and all show up?
