General Information

MB7IMH is a licensed simplex gateway located in Mkt. Harborough. This gateway is primarily connected to the AllStar USA WIN System”. This network connects west coast repeaters from Seattle in the north to Los Angeles in the south. The WIN system can be a very busy network at times, particularly from 16.00 UTC onward, so please keep your overs as short as possible as not to tie up the net. This gateway can be found on the 2 meter band at 145.2875MHz with a 103.5Hz CTCSS tone code. It has a power output of 5watts and a workable range of about 10 miles from Mkt. Harborough. All you will need to use this gateway is a suitable 2 meter radio tuned to the above frequency.

I will be adding some DTMF codes shortly so you can remotely change the gateway to the USA AllStarWAN System”. This is an east coast network covering Massachusetts in the north to Miami in the south,

 

When programming your radio, please use the NFM setting to stop cross band interference

 

PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES  BELOW WHEN CONNECTED TO THE GATEWAY

1) Remember to leave a 3 second gap between over's to allow for repeaters that are linked to the network to reset.

2) Keep you over to less than 3 mins as not to timeout the repeaters.

3) Don’t use CQCQCQ  when calling as it’s the same as calling on the 2meter or 70cm band.

4) Please remember NOT to comment on RELIGION or POLITICS, but almost ANYTHING else goes.

5) Have fun and please feel free to use it as long as you like.

If you need more information on how this system works, contact me at by e-mail and I can talk you through any problems you have.
