*These digipeaters are WIDEn-n,
QCn-n. Please do not use RELAY or WIDE anymore
. QCn-n means, for example, you can digipeat QC3-3. It
does the same as WIDE3-3 but WITHOUT leaving the province of Quebec.
Same goes for QC2-2, QC2-1, etc… Please have your digipeater
configuration updated to support “State Wide” configuration, i.e. QC if
yours is located in the province of Quebec. MOBILE please use an
APRS Path of "WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1" and FIXED stations please use "WIDE2-1" or
“WIDE2-2” if out of city/far of digipeaters area.
The use of RELAY and WIDE is over. Please read

configuration an more: Fixing the 144.39

About Sylvain Faust
First licensed as a Canadian Amateur Radio
Operator on July 13, 1977, at the age of 12, Sylvain has been operating
under the same callsign ever since. Lionel VE2DTV introduced Sylvain
to the Amateur Radio 7 months earlier.
VE2FET was living in Montreal at the
time and quickly became a member of the local club VE2UMS. Among his
other interests, the one for computers emerged in 1979. Under the
early guidance of Pierre, VE2BSI (now VE2ICI), he developed a fascination
for programming, by first toying with microprocessor machine code and soon
enough, 6502 assembler.
Within a few short years, Sylvain
became a world-level specialist in transactional database design and the
fine art of transaction performance tuning. He's the creator of the
product SQL-Programmer(r) (1992) among others and founder of Sylvain Faust
Inc. (1988). (SQL-Programmer(r), SQL-Optimizer(r),
SQL-Sombrero(r) are now owned by BMC Software http://www.bmc.com since
Sylvain was born in February 1965 in
St-Hyacinthe, province of Quebec. He later moved to Montreal at the
age of 8. Sylvain has been living in the Ottawa-Gatineau area (west
of Montreal) between 1986 and 2007, with the exception of 2 years in
Austin, Texas, and is now living in the Ste-Anne-Des-Lacs/St-Sauveur area
(FN25wu) just north of Montreal.
Among his current "Amateur Radio"
equipment, his shelves support top of the line ICOM IC-7800, IC-7000,
IC-PW1, IC-703+, TH-D7, TH-F6, IC-V8000, IC-02AT, MFJ-259B, MFJ-989D,
MFJ-904H, KPC-3 Plus, etc... No more Marconi 52
(52, first receiver for Sylvain where he praticed decoding CW few months
before going for his license exam in 1977),
Mk III, Heathkit HW-16, Heathkit DX-60, Johnson Viking Mk1, or Teletype (RTTY) Model 19,28,33
and many more...
Sylvain is also http://www.eQSL.cc Certified and ARRL/LoTW Certified and
uses incoming/outgoing Quebec QSL Bureau as well. He replies Direct
to all QSL received Direct.
Sylvain also operates a wide APRS
digipeater as VE2FET-1 from his QTH, supporting the most recent WIDEn-n,
QCn-n protocol. He also manages the configuration for the following
digipeaters, VA2REH-3, VE2REG-3 and VE2REH-3.
Do not hesitate to
send email if you have questions. email@example.com
register to http://www.eQSL.cc (it’s FREE!) and also the ARRL LoTW (Logbook Of The
World). Just more ways to get different awards in addition to
