GB7DH is a Northwich based dual-mode Fusion repeater and is operational on RU71.
Keeper/NoV holder/Sysop: M0XDR
The repeater provides Wires-X connectivity and extends the Northwest Fusion Group’s coverage further south towards Knutsford, Northwich, Winsford, Congleton and Stoke On Trent. To the west of Northwich, coverage is good until Runcorn and Kelsall bank.
Band: 70CM (RU71)
Output frequency: 430.8875 MHz
RX Frequency: 438.4875 MHz (+7.6 MHz)
CTCSS: 103.5 Hz (tone squelch)
Normally connected to Wires-X room 41755 (FCS00428)
When accessing via FM, the system will only repeat locally. As the repeater is dual mode FM and C4FM, please program T-SQL, or tone squelch, to avoid hearing digital transmissions on analogue receivers.
The repeater can be connected to other systems, e.g. HUBNet, CQ UK etc by using the Wires-X menu on Yaesu Fusion radios. It will return to the North West Fusion Group after a period of inactivity. Please don’t move the repeater if it is currently in use. Also, importantly, if you move the repeater – make a call!
Furthermore, the C4FM Voice Wide (Victor Whiskey) full rate mode is supported.
GB7YZ is slaved to GB7DH as master so access to Wires-X is possible through both repeaters.
