Have you ever wondered just where you might hear one of the AREG repeaters? The following coverage predictions may help give you a clue. While no prediction is 100% accurate they do give you an idea of what to expect.
VK5RWN D*STAR 23cm Adelaide Metro Coverage
How do you interpret these?
A rough guide is that if you are a stationary high power (50W) mobile you should gain access at full quieting around “S2” at the extent of the Dark Blue coverage. Mobile coverage with reasonable copy with 50W would be the light blue band. Handheld access would begin in the Green coverage zone.
Note: home stations will do much better as this is a mobile prediction which assumes a car antenna 1.5m above the ground with 0dBD gain.
