GB3NZ – Maintenance

GB3NZ is currently on my work bench. I’m trying to replicate the issues we’ve had on site. It appears the problem has disappeared since arriving to the work shop.

Please check back for updates.

GB3NZ – Receiver issues

I’m afraid there is indeed something not right with GB3NZ receiver. After using the system for the past few days, I’ve noticed the receiver drops out intermittently. I don’t believe this is local interference, rather an issue with the hardware.

The repeater is still on air at the moment, you may notice some drop-outs when using the system. I will arrange to take the system out of service to investigate further.

AllStarLink – Expanding & HubNetwork

AllStarLink – Expanding & HubNetwork

I’ve been rather busy of the last couple of days. Firstly may I say a big thanks to Steve M0HOY who runs the HubNetwork in the UK. It’s important to note that Peter G7RPG, Steve M0HOY and Stuart M0WTX have really promoted the network. We’ve seen an increase in local activity since the launch of GB3NZ, thus proving; activity breeds activity!

So a big thank you to everyone that runs the network. If I’ve missed anyone out, please comment below and I will happily update this post!

We are receiving very positive comments from local users, thank you for the feedback.

A new server has launched (NODE 2410), this will allow expanding and promotion of the network. You can view the status board here: https://speechless.iax.org.uk/link.php?nodes=2410

 

 

New Forum for Repeater & Simplex Keepers and Users

New Forum for Repeater & Simplex Keepers and Users

On Saturday, I launched the repeaterkeeper.net forum. This forum is for both Sysops and users, the aim is to bring the community together. It’s a virtual pub, you’ll need to bring your own beer!

Come join in the discussion. All users are welcome!

G7RPG Kind Donation

G7RPG

Peter G7RPG has very kindly donated a few modified USB audio devices that utilise the CM108 chipset. This is a very kind donation as it means we can move to Allstar for linking. Don’t worry EchoLink users, we will also have Echolinking enabled.

I’ll post shortly explaining the reasons to move over to Allstar (Asterisk) based linking.

GB3JC – GB3NZ linking

Elinx system

I’m happy to report GB3JC-NZ are linked together permanently via a remote server running SVXLink. We have a 10M application in for GB3TX, this will also join the permanent link system.

Operators can now check their transceivers by listening to the other repeater.

We are currently looking into a blanket callsign as the system is essentially one.

Here is GB3NZ with the homebrew SVXLink interface card.
