This is a VHF repeater located on top of the Radisson Hotel in downtown Winnipeg – and is run by the MRS group (Manitoba Repeater Society).  Today, I was part of a group who went up to ensure the COS was operating and that it would work properly with the IRLP setup on that site.   We confirmed all is good with the network/etc and started logging state changes in the controller as Yuri probed the controller and did the soldering to wire it up.  After reviewing some online documentation on the controller pins/etc, we were able to isolate the proper connection – and viola – proper DTMF recognition on the software side 🙂

Our little group consisted of Ed, Yuri, Derek, Robert and myself — only took about 2.5 hrs to complete the operation …
