YAESU FUSION NODE'S IN PUDSEY LEEDS WEST YORKSHIRE
My best freind M0SGS now owns and operates an yaesu C4FM fusion node
Home of MB6ILE Freq 431.075 Mhz
Home of MB6LE Freq 144.850 MHz
and is also a member of the UK NET HUB .
My equipment at the moment is as follows . I begin with a TS-570DG, Kenwood AT-250 antenna tuner, Kenwood PS30 PSU ,Kenwood MC60 desk mic and the dinky little Kenwood SP23 extension speaker .A new member of the family is the wonderfull "Shack in a box" Yeasu FT-991. I hope to be going out and about with it next year with my Pro whip vertical, and seeing if I can obtain some C4FM contacts from over seas , I plan to go for a weekend to whitby and set up in the car park near the abbey . Its the higest thing in whitby .
On the digital side of things I have the new Yaesu FTM-100DE a dual band C4FM ( fusion) radio that I quite like , and I have the dinky little yaesu FT1D fusion hand held ,one of 3 that I own. I still have the little Hytera PD365 that I won on facebook My main analouge UHF/VHF handset is a Wouxun KG-UV8D. For 4 meters I have a Philip's (simoco) with the P4DEN modification but with it being FM only I picked up a nice old icom IC-290e a 10 watt radio and I hope to buy a transverter to enable me to use it on 4 meter multimode .
I also like to just listen to the HF /VHF/UHF band and Communications receivers are In my opinion better suited to listen to the airwaves. At the moment I dont live in a good area for listening to radio. At the moment I am using the LiL fella an Icom IC-707 as a kind of communicatios reciever , because I can controll it from within Ham Radio Deluxe. that I am running on my new Dell insperion 6510e laptop which I use and is doing sterling work decoding PSK31,63 , JT65,JT9 on both the kenwood and the Yaesu FT-991 .
Thats all the radio equipment I have ,SO FAR.
I also write about my exploits as a radio ham here is the link my blog
This "trans pennine" repeater has an output on 145.725MHz and the input is 145.125MHz the shift is 0.6MHz minus with a CTCSS tone of 82.5, the Echolink node address is 257033. there has been a new folded dipole antenna fitted at the site so the RF footprint will have changed. the repeater has moved location and is in the process of being set up again in a new location. I hope to be able to access this when it has be re-located.
GB7TP UHF DMR Digital repeater Update: OUTPUT 439.6875 INPUT 430.6875.
This repeater is sited in the same location as GB3TP and the UHF footprint is of course different from the VHF one .
At the moment this is the only repeater I can access , so I now monitor it . If you need to speak to me maybee you can find me on here.
This UHF wide band repeater covers the Bradford and surrounding area the output is 430.4875MHz and the input is 438.8875MHz a shift of plus 7.6MHz with a CTCSS tone of 82.5. This repeater is also internet linked and it's node address is 425621.All three Repeater's are owned and maintained by the Keighley Amateur Radio Society who do sterling work helping new operators to the ham bands. They are in need of money for the upkeep to TP .Their website Follows. KARS
GB3WF is now a fusion repeater and is underused (in my opinion) . It is situated way up near the Leeds Bradford International Airport, and it has the best coverage of any 70cm I have come across. I can usually be heard talking to my good friend (stuzzie) and G0NIG (Nigel) as well as a few other that use it . The frequency for GB3WF for those that don't know is 433.350 MHz with a shift of +1.6MHZ so you will be transmitting on 434.950 MHz with a ctcss tone of 82.5 Hz.The upkeep of the repeater is due to otley amateur radio group and here is a link to their site here please give generously , any contribution will be appreciated.
I am registered with e-qsl if you wish to e-qsl me.
Many Thanks go to fellow radio hams
