Theriot, LA

 
This repeater is located in Theriot on Bayou DuLarge south of Houma.
The repeater hardware utilizes the Yaesu System Fusion.  Modes include simple analog and C4FM digital.  For technical reasons, all inputs on this repeater are
mapped to the analog out port, no matter the input mode.  When some technical issues are resolved,  the repeater will be available in all modes
The antenna is a DB224 mounted on the northeast arm of the candelabra at 550 feet.  The coverage area is nothing short of phenomenal.  Lots of great signal
reports from Laplace, Prairieville,  New Orleans, all places that haven't heard this repeater in years!!! 
Just like our Gray, LA repeater, telemetry data for this repeater system (Battery Bank Voltage and Room Temperature) can be found on the Comment line on THIS LINK per the APRS station KK5CM-1. Once again, cudos to Craig, KK5CM!!

Houma, LA

The 444.500/449.500 repeater is back on the air! 

No tone is required to access the receiver, but the antenna is only up at 40 feet at this point in time. It is currently located on Coteau Road, north of the Southland Mall in Houma. 

This repeater is a Yaesu System Fusion repeater that can automatically detect digital signals as well as analog, and will automatically switch operating modes based on the input signal.
Let's get on this one and wring it out, so when it is ready to relocate to a bigger stick, all potential problems will have been worked out.  The call sign is W5YL/R.
The telemetry for this repeater's Voltage and Room Temperature are on the COMMENT line of this LINK.

 

About these repeaters

  • Our repeaters have good coverage of the Bayou Region: Terrebonne, Lafourche, Assumption, St John, and St James parishes
  • We use these repeaters for recreation in everyday life, but during and after a disaster, they become essential for critical communication as needed by government and non-government agencies
  • We utilize Two Meter and 70cm, FM and Digital (Yaesu Fusion)
