I couldn't make it work. A friend and I tried using DV on our analog
repeater to no avail.

It is possible for a GMSK signal to pass though a voice grade 
repeater.  I have tried this with MICOR, MSF5000 and Quantar type 
repeaters.  I am not sure if the GMSK was passed error free, but the 
error correction (for voice) built into the AMBE2000 codec seemed to 
handle any errors that were induced.  The part of the signal that 
seems to be degraded is in the low frequency spectra of the GMSK 
signal.  I have recorded GMSK using an ID=800 and an M-Audio Delta 44 
soundcard, and have played the signal back through the signal 
generator in an HP8920A  The results were similar to the repeater 
tests mentioned above.
