Room on Fusion 


The Repeater is linked to the wires X system but things are getting better world wide on fusion A big thanks to Lee and the Team at Lamco for Supporting the fusion repeater GB7SH in Sheffield

Hi to all if you are thinking of working the wires network on GB7SH will you please wait for the carrier to drop on the repeater to allow the repeater to  reset on the network, GB7SF D-Star Group as run D-star from 2008 before that time i run IRLP/Echolink as i was one of the First Amateurs to setup the Linking here in UK, As you all can see things has moved on from that time With Linking ,  If you need help just call Steve M1ERS the Repeater Keeper and he will help  there is lots of station on the repeater from all over the world  most of the time there is lots of rooms  GB7SH join in and enjoy your selfs  you can connect to  other station if you want, I am thinking of  linking IRLP and maybe DMR to  GB7SH Room . in the coming weeks  and making a South Yorkshire Hub, I have just done some Antenna work  in the last months or so to improve the coverage and i may put a Pre amp on the repeater  for mobiles, I hope that this may help amateurs with hand helds to access  the repeater better    To improve the System for Users their is  lots more  in the pipe line to improve  the DMR Plus Network.  if you would like to know about the  links and rooms Please Drop me an Email, stevem1ers@blueyonder.co.uk . GB7SF Group runs all the Systems for users to enjoy please think of Supporting  your local Repeater GB7SF  network

Operating on an FRG Node




If your local repeater (or local station) has been set up as a WIRES-II FRG Node, operation is extremely simple.


Just go to the WIRES-II Home Page, and consult the “WIRES-II I.D. List” by clicking on the tab on the left side of the Home Page. Now click on the geographical area of interest to you. When you find a Node that is of interest, jot down its I.D. number.


For example, to call node #1101D in California, close the PTT switch on your transceiver, then key in the [#][1][1][0][1][D] DTMF digits from your keypad. A link should be established, and you can just make a call as though you were operating on a regular repeater.


When your QSO is over, be sure to send the “disconnect” signal, which is either [#][9][9][9][9][9] or [#][9][9][9][9][D].


During your QSO, it is possible that the other station may seem to disappear. If this happens, it is possible that the other station’s Time-Out Timer may have terminated the link. Wait a few minutes, and try again, but do not immediately try to re-establish the link. When making an initial QSO, it is recommended that you keep your transmissions short until you come to know the Time-Out Timer settings for the other station.





Operating Reminders for WIRES-II




Remember that the Node you are calling may be in a dramatically different time zone from yours, so if you don’t get a response, be sure you’re not calling in the middle of the night!


The [A], [B], [C], and [D] DTMF keys are used for Group Calling within WIRES-II. So if you hit one of these keys, you may be calling as many as ten Nodes at once (consult your Node administrator for details). If possible, find out the I.D. Number of the Node that is responding, so you can call that Node back directly (so as not to tie up multiple stations unnecessarily)

Note that some Nodes may not accept Group Calling.

When communicating via WIRES-II, be sure to use the “disconnect” signal (either [#][9][9][9][9][9] or [#][9][9][9][9][D]).


If your transceiver does not have DTMF capability, you may still be able to communicate via WIRES-II. For example, if someone your repeater is engaged in a QSO, you may “break in” just as you would during any other type of repeater QSO (use common courtesy, as always!). However, SRG operation generally will not be possible without a DTMF-equipped transceiver.
