Talk groups and Reflectors

The following talkgroups and reflectors are available on GB7RR.

GB7RR Talk groups

Timeslot 1


Timeslot 2

Timeslot 2 implements the use of reflectors similar to the Dstar network. The easiest way to use the reflector is to program your radio with Talkgroup 9 (local) in timeslot 2. This is the only talkgroup you will need for a QSO on the reflector.

To link and unlink the reflector, program the radio with the reflector number as a group call on timeslot 2. To link to a reflector, select the reflector number from the contacts list and transmit for about 1 second. The repeater should respond with a voice announcement, "Linked to xxxx". Then go back to Talkgroup 9 to make a QSO.
To unlink select 4000 from the contacts list, transmit for about 1 second, and you should hear a voice announcement "Not Linked".

To enquire about the reflector link status call 5000, and the repeater will respond with the currently linked reflector.
