Controlling the Remote Base

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

The remote base transceiver is an Icom IC-2AT.

The remote base is selected by putting the repeater in macro 3.
For macro 3 (two meters) press touch-tone *653 (defaults to 147.12 + receive only, pl 103.5)

Once in macro 3, the following codes apply to the remote base:
*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

*653 (repeater says "M3", followed by "Macro 3")
*77*3453 (repeater says "seven point three four five plus")
*72 (repeater says "transmit")

Two meter frequency of 146.520 simplex

*653 (repeater says "M3" followed by "Macro 3")
*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 *65100. Repeater will respond with a number from 1 to 5. This is the macro number. When finished with the remote base, press *65_ where _ is the previous macro number.
