WIRES-X repeater

UK Fusion repeater map


Accessing a WIRES-X repeater couldn’t be simpler; program a repeater local to you in to your WIRES-X radio (split and DTMF tone included) then instead of pressing the PTT press the WIRES-X button on your radio. As long as the repeater excepts digital WIRES-X


This will send out a handshake, the repeater should return the same. Then you can then change room on the repeater and use WIRES-X the same as if you have a HRI-200 and second radio set up.

You will still need to set up for a repeater; split frequency and DTMF


Changing a repeaters room this changes for everyone. Could be an idea to ask if it is in use before changing rooms

Gateways


What is a Gateway?

The Gateway is Local Node that is normally run by a ham who has opened their personal node for anyone to use used, this is intern; linked to a room and then other nodes miles away make up a network (or cluster). Giving greater coverage over a wide area.
That’s where a Local Node is linked to WIRES-X Network and becomes a point of entry for any ham in range on that node; offering theoretically more places to access WIRES-X then repeaters alone.

A gateway in this way acts like a repeater however without the split and normally offering only one service; in this case WIRES-X (no analogue voice).
