Chris Andrews, 2E0UKH reported making a long distance DMR repeater contact on July 23rd. Chris was able to reach a repeater in Utrecht, Netherlands, from Lowestoft, UK. The distance between Utrecht and Lowestoft is 145 miles, making it one of the longest known DX repeaters reached on DMR, and just shy of the simplex record.
Chris reports that its not uncommon to reach repeaters across the channel during lift conditions on FM, but this is the first time he’s experienced it on DMR.
