439.425MHz -9MHz shift CC10

DMR Repeaters have 2 Time slots TS1 and TS2 normally with DMR repeaters one slot is used for local and one slot is used for roaming (connecting to other networks Hubnet, Freestar or CQUK etc).

In the case of GB7VH things are set up a little differently Time Slot 1 is connected to the BrandMeister Master normally connected to HubNet. Time Slot 2 is DMR to YSF, using 70 followed by the 5 digit YSF reflector number. So it is possibly simplest to think of it as 2 separate repeaters as both timeslots can be used at the same time.

TS1 – BrandMeister which a very well known network offering a lot of Worldwide connectivity again this network is based on talk groups. Popular ones being TG91 Worldwide (possibly the busiest talk group out there) and a number of local talk groups like Europe 92, London 2358 and Hubnet 23526 etc please note you need to send Group call 4000 to disconnect.

TS2 – DMR2YSF this system allows you to use your DMR radio on any of the Yaesu System Fusion reflectors. YSF reflectors are 5 digit numbers e.g. 41893 is Southern Fusion to connect you need to set your radio it 70+the reflector number so 7041893.

Programming DMR radios can be complicated but some basic things to look out for is getting the frequencies in correctly please note that GB7VH is a wide split repeater transmitting on 439.425MHz and Listening on 430.425MHz DMR repeaters use colour codes 10 in this case think of this as like CTCSS so important to set this or your transmission will be ignored. then you need to make Sure you are using the correct Time slots TS1 or TS2 depending which network you want to use. Then set the correct Talk Group.

Lots of Modern radios allow you to change talk group on the fly I run a couple of radios running GD77 firmware which are an example of these So i would set up the Repeater twice and have one as TS1 and one as TS2 then you can press and hold the # key to change talk group.
