The Wyre Forest Repeater Group who were linking several of their repeaters to module B of Reflector 24 now have their own DStar Reflector 36.
Reflector 36 came online during the early hours of Monday morning  13th September 2010. Midstar UK are using module A, the Wales & West Country Groups are using Module B and Module C will be used for Dongle to Dongle & DVAP to DVAP . 
 
The W8SHI Module C Repeater (145.240 MHz) is usually linked to Reflector 24 Module C and the Module B Repeater  (444.300 MHz) is currently linked to Reflector 24 B which is being used by the Indiana DSTAR group.  Users such as mobile stations traveling through the area may unlink a repeater if it is not in use and relink it to another reflector. After a period of inactivity the repeater will be automatically re-linked to the original reflector module.
