While not directly connected to the DMRVA repeater network, this new repeater is operated cooperatively by DMRVA staff.

The repeater is located in downtown Richmond with an elevation of approximately 350 feet. The repeater performs nicely to the north, east and south. Coverage to the west is decent too but there is some shadowing due to the buildings.

It operates on 443.5375 MHz, up 5 MHz with CC1. TS 1 is wide open for any talkgroup available on the BM network. TS 2 currently carries Va Statewide (3151), Local 2 (2), Local 9 ( 9, local repeater only) as well as Richmond Local (31511 – tied to the DMRVA repeater local).
