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, UiView32 and my IP Cameras, my links are on 144.9625, 50.520, 70.4125, 430.050 and 1299.850 23cm Repeater GB3BK, UiView is on 144.800. 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 radios are Motorola GM350s except for GB3BK which is using 2 GM340s Vhf radios and the mini-kit transverter coupled to the VK5DJ 2 port controller. When Echolink transmits or receives a signal this is passed to all radios connected to the RLS-1000B 3 port expander, the Scom 7330 and GB3BK this works in all directions from all bands.

 All links use CTCSS 103.5 for access (except UiView32), Key down is set to 3 minutes, dead carrier and inactivity timeouts are set to 1 minute. APRS (UIiview32)  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

   
This is the new GB3BK 23cms repeater, BK is made up using 2 Vhf GM340s mobile radios and a mini-kit transverter, housed in the Motorola XPR8300 Case. Mini-Kits Visit Site
   
  This is the old GB3BK an ICOM IC-RP-1210 which is in need of repair, Rx is Ok but the fault is low output as these are as rare as hens teeth it seems ashame not to have it fixed, so if anyone can help please email me.
   
Bird Technologies manufacturers a comprehensive line of duplexers with the critical specifications you require to operate a high performance system. Visit Site
   
Repeater controller supplied by John VK5DJ this is a 2 port linking controller design for amateur or professional use - usually a duplex repeater on port 1 and a simplex link or gateway on port 2. This is used to link GB3BK to the other simplex links that are connected to Echolink. Visit site
   
RLS-1000B Remote Link Switch to connect three transceivers to the remote base input port of any controller all three transceivers can be selected at the same time, this is linked to the Scom 7330 and the VK5DJ controller the functions of the controller in PDF format can be downloaded Here or Visit site
   
Scom 7330 this is my new 3 port controller which is interfaced to the above RLS-1000B and the VK5DJ controllers, ports have a courtesy tone to indicate that the link is active and end of over, the functions of the controller in PDF format can be downloaded Here or Visit site
   
Motorola GM350 more functions and programming options with the 128 channel  version, all links work simultaneously so you can use any of the links from RF to make a Echolink connection.
   
Echolink software allows licensed Amateur Radio stations to communicate with one another over the Internet, using streaming-audio technology. The program allows worldwide connections to be made between stations. Echolink user Guide in PDF format can be downloaded Here or Visit site
   
The Ultimate linking interface (ULI) is the best i found to use with for Echolink, PSK31 or any other software that needs a soundcard. No longer available, this is the alternative. Visit Site
   
 

 
 


Motorola GM340 drives the transverter.



This is my 6 meter link on 50.520, thanks to Dave G7UZN for the equipment, this is made up of a Motorola GM340 and a R&N Electronics transverter.

UI-View32 is an APRS client this application differs from most APRS software in that it isn't designed just to be used with TNCs in terminal mode. Visit site or download the UI-View32 Quick-Start Guide in PDF format Here
   
The AEA PK-232 gives you six modes including weather fax, Morse code, Baudot RTTY, ASCII, AMTOR and Packet. Two radio ports, HF/VHF radio selection switching on the front panel, indicators make multimode operation simple by giving mode and status information at a glance, operator's manual in PDF format can be downloaded Here
