I'll give it a try. The Bridgewater 444.550 (88.5) was part of last year's free test program with the DR-1 repeater. We then decided to get the DR-1X for $500, which could be interfaced with a controller, etc. the DR-1X is now on the air, with the Arcom ADR interface allowing connection to the RC210 controller. We have it linked (analog only) with the 147.18 repeater for now. 18 is also now improved, as its running about triple the power it had been for the last 10 years or so.
We can only run 10 watts on 444.55 due to PAVE PAWS, but coverage is quite good for what it is, analog and fusion.
