Is the club still active? Have heard nothing on the repeater, nor any responses from email to the website.
Was receikving an email newsletter while I was moving here but have heard noting for months... just curious.

Good morning everyone. Today while programming my DMR Radio, I noticed that there is one DMR Repeater in Sioux Falls. Is this a standalone repeater or is this linked nationally and if so, what are the talkgroups on it so I can program it to my Radio.

I've been inactive on the air waves for a while. Now that I have a little more free time, I'll probably fire back up a radio, maybe try to hit a meeting once and a while (kid activity duty permitting).
