Using WC as a local Repeater and Gateway

D Star Repeater and Gateway use requires your radio to be set up with programmed paths and call sign fields.

These can be accessed via the menu, or up loaded from a file with the appropriate cable and software.

However this file is for IC92 GB7WC no call. Right click save as you know the routine!

Alternatively a local file edited by Gerry G0NWE called the Mersey Triangle includes D Star and analogue repeater data for the 28020 thanks Gerry.
