HOW TO USE IT
Simple. If you can hear someone using it wait until the carrier drops, i.e. your carrier light goes off, or your bargraph drops. Wait one second then identify yourself with callsign twice (the PTT switch will trip in). Then transmit as normal remembering that if you have a long gap between speech the ptt may drop out and the station that you are talking to may think that you have passed it back to them. Please remember to give your callsign at the end of your over, as you are likely to be transmitting out of the UK. There then follows a delay of approx 3 or 4 seconds. And you will hear the other station reply.
OR go to the GB3PZ website
The repeater transmits on a frequency of 430.900MHz with a superimposed 82.5Hz CTCSS tone that can be used to control the squelch opening of suitably equipped receivers. Set your receive frequency to 430.900MHz. The repeater uses a 7.6MHz split so you need to transmit on 438.500MHz. The repeater requires a continuous access tone of 82.5Hz to open and remain open to your transmission. Set your transmit frequency to 438.500MHz and your CTCSS tone to 82.5Hz.
Most modern transceivers will let you set up a repeater frequency in memory with a 7.6MHz split but if not you can usually set up a memory with separate transmit and receive frequencies which will do the same job.
Please identify your station with your callsign and the node number you are attempting to call before controlling the IRLP node. To connect to an IRLP node dial the 4 digit node number. To connect to an Echolink node dial # followed by the station node number. To disconnect dial 73.
