W3YT Repeater 146.865 (-) 123.0 Hz tone
IRLP node 8444, Echolink node 86768, AllStar node 28325
Treasure Island, FL
Serving the islands and surrounding areas with local 2-meter repeater communication and long distance communication via the IRLP, Echolink, and AllStar systems.
The system: The repeater is a GE Mastr II Executive with 20 watts of transmit power after the duplexers. The controller is a MCC RC-1000V. The IRLP/Echolink node uses a Raspberry Pi running the Debian distibution of Linux. The AllStar node uses a BeagleBone Black running Archlinux.
The repeater audio is streamed live at: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/16665
The live streaming video pointed to the beach is at (daytime only) : https://www.dropcam.com/p/F6sv8b
THIS IS AN OPEN REPEATER, AVAILABLE TO ALL LICENSED AMATEUR RADIO OPERATORS.
#9 forces CW ID
#0 DTMF test
111 connection status of node
XXXX connect to distant IRLP node
73 disconnect from distant linked IRLP node
9999 IRLP echo reflector to hear playback of your signal via IRLP (73 to disconnect)
#XXXXX Connect to distant Echolink node
#73 disconnect from distant Echolink node
*511 connection status of node ("repeat only" means not connected to a node)
*3XXXX connect to distant node
Shortcuts to connect to certain reflectors or nodes:
*52 N3VSI node 28366 (MD)
*54 WAN System (PA and East Coast)
*55 WIN System (CA)
*56 Alaska reflector
*58 Saltgrass System (TX)
*59 WA3DSP node 27225 (PA)
*512 NX4Y node 40688 (Tampa)
*513 WB6NIL node 2026 (Los Angeles)
CHANGING THE REPEATER FROM IRLP/ECHOLINK TO ALLSTAR
Note: when not connected to a node, the repeater should be left at rest in the IRLP/Echolink - ready state.
DTMF codes to toggle between IRLP/EchoLink and AllStar:
(Note, please disconnect from any nodes before you toggle to a different system)
Switch to AllStar - ready state: enter D333
Switch to IRLP/Echolink - ready state: enter D336
After D333 you will hear a 2-tone beep, low to high.
After D336 you will hear a 2-tone beep, high to low.
If the repeater is in use, you will not hear these tones until after it is quiet.
To see what state the system is in:
111 will give message only if in IRLP/Echolink - ready state
*511 will give message only if in AllStar - ready state
If you get nothing for either code, try the toggle codes above to set the state
This will also help you tell if you if the switch is on the IRLP or the AllStar side:
In IRLP, there is no extra courtesy tone other than the usual repeater coutesy tone (which is pretty loud).
In AllStar, there are 2-3 extra beeps that you will hear as courtesy tones.
In AllStar you will here when another node connects with a female voice.
When you are finished with AllStar, please toggle repeater back to IRLP/Echolink - ready state.
