GB7YD

Myself and Jeff 2E0VYV as been up to the site to investigate the the D-STAR 70cms port on GB7YD-B repeater. After several tests we found the output of the unit direct from the back of the repeater was 0.16 watts. The unit has been removed for further investigation. Ernie G4LUE.

MB6IBK OPERATIONAL

DMR Gateway MB6IBK is now operational in Bracknell, Berkshire. The frequency is 434.4875, colour code 3, slot 2, 1w ERP. The gateway is connected to both the DMR+ and Brandmeister networks via the gateway built into the Pi-Star software used to run the node. The default connection is to DMR reflector 4400 which is the Brandmeister UK wide call channel but most Brandmeister and DMR+ reflectors should be accessible. To connect to a new reflector you must send a PRIVATE CALL to the reflector you want. For Brandmeister use the regular reflector number, so for Reflector 4400,use 4400. Brandmeister reflectors are returned to the Gateway on Talk Group 9. So you need to have TG9 in your recieve talk groups list. For DMR+ add a "8" infront of the reflector number. So for 4400 on DMR+ use 84400. DMR+ connections will come back to the gateway as Talk Group 8, so ensure you have TG8 in your receive group list for each channel. /G0NEF
