The Chambersburg repeater is on the air on the Brandmeister network. It is a wide-area repeater. For travellers, it provides approximately 120 miles of coverage along Interstate 81 from Winchester, VA through Harrisburg, PA, and it covers the PA Turnpike from near Breezewood (exit 161) to Lebanon/Lancaster (exit 266). At present, the static (full-time) talkgroups are TS1/TG3142 PA Statewide, TS2/TG2 Northeast PA, TS2/TG8 (for system administrators only). Please use TS1 for all other talkgroups. Coverage reports are welcome and encouraged.
All of the WR3IRS Brandmeister repeaters located in Pennsylvania now have the PA Statwide talkgroup 3142 full-time on timeslot 1. Additionally, they all also now carry the Northeastern PA (NEPA) talkgroup as talkgroup 2 ("local 2") on timeslot 2, including those repeaters that are not specifically located in northeastern Pennsylvania. This was done mainly to stir up additional activity on the new repeaters as they come on-line and may be changed sometime in the future.
