Welcome to Chichester Repeater located North Bersted, Bognor Regis, West Sussex.
This analogue repeater is on channel RU77, Output frequency 430.9625MHz, Input frequency 438.5625MHz, CTCSS access 88.5Hz.
Aerial is a Diamond DX-50 at 25 feet AGL, ERP is 11dBW
Repeater access is 0.5 seconds carrier with CTCSS 88.5Hz, successful access confirmed by a single K acknowledgement. If an over takes more than 15 minutes a watchdog timer is initiated.The repeater will then shut down. Upon cessation of the stations transmission the controller will delay access for approximately 75 seconds. Normal access can then be resumed.
Repeater I.D. is every 25 minutes without access, if a user accesses the repeater, this will reset I.D timer. The next access will give the station I.D and then the "K". Further access will give only the K on successful access.
CTCSS is disabled on the acknowledgement K and ident announcements, this is for implimentation of AllStar so to hear the K signifying end of over and idents, please turn off your radios Tone Squelch or TSQL.
Battery backup is now implemented, this should give 1-2 hours operation in the event of mains failure.
Please note, Allstar is now implemented and links GB3CC to GB3RW at Worthing, GB3LR at Newhaven, GB3EB at Uckfield, GB7ZE at Hastings, then the whole of Sussex will be covered. When you put a call out on GB3CC it will also come out on the above repeaters, this should give a welcome increase in activity as well as helping mobiles crossing Sussex.
To disconnect GB3CC from AllStar for local nets etc., DTMF *76, you will hear a disconnected message to confirm. To reconnect GB3CC to AllStar DTMF *355338, again locally you will hear a connected message to confirm.
