Your a MHz off on the input frequency, try the following:

434.6250 Input
433.0250 Output

CTCSS 82.5Hz

The repeater has a good range accross Bury and Rochdale so you should get in OK.

GB3MA will be changing to DV mode during the early part of 2013. Tests will start during February.


Looks like it's now a Dead Start repeater..

Whatever testing they have been doing it's still currently thankfully an analogue repeater, and you don't need a tone burst just the CTCSS of 82.5Hz.

If it is running or doing testing in D-star then you'll hear a noise similar to this coming from it :wink:
