José Guerreiro CT1EPS the President of RCL - Radioamador Clube de Loulé, has announced on the Portuguese ARLA / CLUSTER Internet mailing list that the D-STAR repeater in the Algarve is now installed and operational.

He writes:

The Ham Radio community and the Portuguese colleagues in particular are cheerful in recognition for a brand new D-Star repeater CQ0DFO, permanently installed, just a few days ago.

This equipment was over a test period at a relatively short time. The location is Fóia ( Monchique Mountain ) in Algarve, (the most Southern Province of Portugal).

Thanks to an agreement between the regional Ham Radio Association, the " Radioamador Clube de Loulé " - RCL, and Icom's national agent, the NAUCOM corporation and also with ANACOM (the Portuguese administration of telecommunications) it was possible to achieve this ambition.

On behalf of all ham radio colleagues, RCL is remarkably grateful to Mr. Avelino Barrote CT1CHS from NAUCOM, by this unique opportunity to contribute for some avant-garde experiments on the innovative digital technology D-STAR in Portugal.

All donations are welcome.
