SSTV Repeaters
Hi Christine, well it has taken a while but I got around to putting pen to paper,
be it a short note, attached is a brief update of the present situation,
could yo do what you do so well with it then pass it on for the broadcast,
sorry to be so brief, Ray VK6ET. 
 
Since my move to Geraldton things have had to change due to space restrictions,
still things are all working well even though there are
a few cables hanging on the back patio,
we are running three SSTV Repeaters again on 7.050, 14.227 and 21.349Mhz,
the main change to these is that they now recognize and work for Digital SSTV
as well as the analogue mode, this is due mainly to the efforts of Erik VK4AES,
he did a great job developing SSTV Pal MultiMode, yours truly then suggested a
further developement to make it work as a Repeater.

It is still under developement but is running well at this site,
the beacon is not
yet as instructive as previous but they are there and
they come every 30 minutes, QRM allowing, based on the hour
so it makes it easier to check propagation, the beacon is always in analogue
as it is less sensitive to frequency than the Digital mode,
attached to the Beacon is my new E-mail address,
reports would be appreciated.

If you do access the repeater with a 1750 tone
the change you will notice is that on the call and K there is a dual tone,
this is not feed back, it is a tone for those wishing to send a Digital picture
to assist them to accurately ascertain the repeater frequency.

W A Repeater Group - Minutes and Newsletters

To help maintain the repeaters for our retirement years,
because we will have to hide small antennae inside
or use hand-held radios.
We will need "gateways" linked repeater systems.
VHF/UHF to HF to VHF/UHF
(assuming we still have any UHF frequencies)
or local repeaters through the internet to other repeaters
intrastate, interstate and overseas.

ECHO-IRLP

In summary, it does not allow any form of cross linking
between IRLP and EchoLink.
What it does offer however, is the ability for IRLP nodes to also
have full connectivity to the EchoLink network.
