NOTE: The 145.17 repeater now has an extremely short "hang time" to
minimize issues with the IRLP system. You will NOT hear a long "tail"
from the repeater when you un-key.
The WB4GBI 145.17 repeater now features an IRLP node!
From Tim, WB4GBI:
Thanks to Joe, K1RBY, the 145.17 WB4GBI repeater has an IRLP node! When you use the IRLP node on 145.17, it will sound just like
another repeater user... only this user will bring us fellow amateur radio
operators from around the world!
For more specific user information about IRLP, please check out their
website. To use IRLP, you
will need the four digit "node" or "reflector" number. That information
is available on the website as well, click HERE. The WB4GBI 145.170
IRLP node is 8342. After you have the four-digit number for the node or reflector that you wish to connect to, key your radio, ID with your callsign, then
use your DTMF (touch tone) pad to send the number. If you are
successful, you will hear the repeater respond with the node or
reflector's connect message. Remember to PAUSE between transmissions to give the IRLP system time to work. When you are finished, key up your mic, ID first, then send the DTMF tones "73." The system will respond with a disconnect message if successful.
In order for my repeater to work properly on IRLP, the repeater will use
tone squelch (encode and decode) on a full time basis. The tone is 118.8 Hertz, similiar
to my other repeaters. The addition of the tone does NOT mean that the repeater
is closed! It is in place to insure that no unwanted audio or signals are
passed into the IRLP system.
If you have any questions about how to use IRLP on 145.17, please
give me a call or email.
Thank you, K1RBY!!

The 145.170 machine is a
Motorola MTR 2000 repeater,
with a Celwave PD-497-1 6-cavity band
pass/band reject duplexer.
This is a factory-made 132-150
MHz split repeater. Photos will be posted soon!
