The original YB DMR repeater was put up some time in 2015. A Motorola XPR8300 outputting 40W, it suffered the same fate many of the early XPR repeaters did: a fried PA and burned receiver circuitry. Towards the end of its life coverage was dropping fast even with preamps in place. End of watch: 2017.
The current Moto SLR5700 was donated by a former member and Purdue alum, and was put in service in 2017. No problems so far, fingers crossed.
