Welcome to the Massachusetts Interconnect Team (M I T)
Our Mission is to advance
digital communication, science and promote the enjoyment of Amateur
Radio. We have a passion for delivering engineering
solutions through an open collaborative based approach to
problem solving. We endeavor to engage in opportunities to
bring our collaborative teaming methodology to groups of
likeminded organizations looking to develop, solve challenges
and advance digital communications for Amateur Radio. We
have zero tolerance for politics, personal agendas, lack of
imagination, or prejudice in any capacity.
We hold the following ideals as central components to our core beliefs:
* Altruism in contributing back our works for the common good and advancement of technology.
* Innovation in constantly pushing the boundaries of "why not".
* Integrity in our relationships with promoting open dialog, visibility of purpose and the courage to do what is right.
Our resources include a Motorola MotoTRBO IPSC Network and ICOM D-STAR Network open to all Licensed Amateurs.
In April 2006, our D-STAR Repeater & Gateway (W1DSR) was the first fully operational D-STAR implementation in Massachusetts followed by the first New England DPLUS Reflector (REF050) in January 2011.
In February 2012, we implemented the first fully operational Motorola MotoTRBO Repeater (ID #312501 /W1DSR) in Massachusetts. In May 2012 our IPSC MotoTRBO Network was expanded with the implementation of a c-Bridge in order to provide efficient point-to-point connections to our c-Bridge IPSC Partner Networks. Our IPSC Partner, to whom we owe our deepest gratitude, is Mike Shirley, [NO7RF] Digital Communications Inc. (DCI), who is our c-Bridge & MotoTRBO mentor and friend. We thank Mike for his tireless contributions to Amateur Radio as well as extensive research and development in DMR.
In October 2014, MITCOM introduced a "Repeater Maintenance Program" that offers Amateur Radio Clubs, Trustees or Owners of Amateur Radio Repeaters tuning and/or problem diagnosis of their Filters, Duplexers, Antennas, Circulators/Isolators using a CMT PC-Driven TR1300/1 Vector Network Analyzer made possible by Copper Mountain Technologies (CMT).
In February 2015 MITCOM introduced the "USA 1776" Talk Group distributed to Amateur DMR networks worldwide.
We are pleased to extend an open invitation to those individuals and organizations that embrace digital technology as the new frontier of Amateur Radio communications and would like to partner with M I T and/or connect to our MotoTRBO or D-STAR Networks.
Please feel free to contact us for additional information or assistance.
