 Programming For Gateway Use

To access other repeaters and users via the Gateway your call sign must be registered on the Gateway System.  You must only register oncePlease contact M1ERSto apply  for registration. If you registered through another Repeater’s Gateway System, you need not register here.  

When making a Gateway call make sure you state that you are on the Gateway.  After each call listen for a sufficient period of time to allow responding stations to set their radios to answer through the Gateway.

To program your radio to contact a specific station via the GB7SF Gateway follow the instructions below:

To program your radio to make a general call to a remote repeater via the GB7SF Gateway follow the instructions below:

To Make A General Call To A Remote Repeater (Example GB7IC) Via The 2 m Repeater Gateway

Frequency 145.7375 Negative Offset
MYCALL = Your Call Sign
URCALL = GB7IC B  (Module In 8th Position) The Module is A, B or C depending upon the remote repeater module to be accessed.
RPT1 = GB7SF C (C in 8th position)
RPT2 = GB7SF G (G in 8th position)

 

To Make A General Call To A Remote Repeater (Example GB7YD) Via The  430 Repeater Gateway

Frequency 439.7375 Negative Offset -9Mhz
MYCALL = Your Call Sign
URCALL = GB7YD B (Module In 8th Position) The Module is A, B or C depending upon the remote repeater module to be accessed.
RPT1 = GB7SF B (B in 8th position)
RPT2 = GB7SF G (G in 8th position)

 

When making a general call to a remote repeater URCALL must start with a / followed by the callsign and then the letter of the RF module on the remote system you wish to transmit from.  The module letter must be in the 8th position regardless of call sign length.  Common RF module identifiers are:

A = 1.2 gig

 B = 70 cms

    C = 2 meters

    G = Gateway

To  utilise the one touch capture feature, on the IC-E91 press the CALL button for 1 second whilst the gateway station is still transmitting.  For the IC- 2820 press F twice and then R>CS button.

Very Important:

When you sign after a gateway call you must return URCALL to CQCQCQ.  Should you fail to do so your subsequent calls will still go via the gateway to the user and/or repeater indicated in URCALL.
