Hardware.

Where shall I start, firstly I must thank Dave G7UZN, Dennis G0OLX and others for helping me to setup this project god knows how may paracetamol they swallowed.  

Below is all the hardware that I use to Cross band links on Echolink, Wires-X and UiView32, my links are on 144.9625, 70.4125, 430.050, GB3BK 23cm Repeater, GB3KB 6 meter repeater and Wires-X my room on Wires-X is user ID: GB3BK-RPT, GB3BK-ROOM ID: 44176.

All links work simultaneously you don't need an Echolink connection to cross band, you can use any of the links from RF to make a Echolink connection Rf reports are always welcomed.

A quick description on how it works with the hardware below, all link radios are Motorola GM350s except for GB3BK which is using 2 GM340s Vhf radios and the mini-kit transverter, GB3KB is a modified low band Philips FX-5000 which is coupled to the Scom 7330 and the Cat Rls-1000b. When Echolink transmits or receives a signal this is passed to all radios connected to the Scom 7330  and the RLS-1000b 3 port expanders this works in all directions from all bands.

 All links use CTCSS 103.5 for access, key down is set to 3 minutes and dead carrier and inactivity timeouts are set to 1 minute. 

APRS (UIiview32) is on 144.800 with Echolink this is used to provide information about my links which may be helpful to nearby stations trying to locate them. You can see my position Here
