Controlling the Remote Base

(Currently, remote base operation is only available on the UHF input of the system, not the VHF input.)

This repeater uses the FC-1 interface to allow touch-tone control of the remote base transceivers.

The remote base transceivers are Icom hand-helds. The two-meter transceiver is an IC-2AT, and the 222 MHz transceiver is an IC-3AT.

Frequency control of the transceivers is identical. The specific transceiver is selected by putting the repeater in macro 3 for two meters.
For macro 3 (two meters) press touch-tone **53 (defaults to 147.12 + receive only, pl 103.5)
For macro 4 Allstar/IRLP/Echolink press touch-tone **54

Once in macro 3, the following codes apply
**71 receive only
**72 transmit/receive
**73 off

**7M*HTOF where
M=Megahertz digit
H=Hundred kilohertz
T=Ten kilohertz
O=One kilohertz 0 or 5
F=Offset 1=minus, 2=simplex, 3=plus

Examples:
Two meter frequency of 147.345 plus offset

**53 (repeater says "M3")
**77*3453 (repeater says "seven point three four five plus")
**72 (repeater says "transmit")

Two meter frequency of 146.520 simplex

**53 (repeater says "M3")
**76*5202 (repeater says "six point five two zero s")
**72 (repeater says "transmit")

Before using a remote base, always check the current macro by pressing **5100. Repeater will respond with a number from 1 to 5. This is the macro number. When finished with the remote base, press **5_ where _ is the previous macro number.
