* Reorganisation of repeater identities...

We have to make a couple of changes to the way that repeater/gateways are identified in our database. Please read this article to make sure that you are currently using the correct protocol.

Due to the way that the indexing o­n our database works, we needed to switch around the country denominator and numerical code. So, for example my link:-

001UK-L becomes UK001-L

We'd be grateful if you would do that as and when you get a chance. All new gateway identities will be issued using this format.

This is of course, nothing to do with the callsign that you as an individual use o­n air, which is entirely up to you.

We are currently running a callsign poll simply for the purpose of asking you if you would like some form of a standard. The poll will be extended for another week or so. A lot of people have an opinion o­n this. If the majority don't share yours, we're sorry, but we will follow the majority in a true democratic manner. It is not compulsory! You can call yourself "Smokey Bacon" for all we care!

We have also re-named the "Repeaters" with their true accurate name of "Link". Anyone creating a 446 radio link should use the term "446 Link" and the UHF Aus. CB guys can use "UHF Link". This is a lot more descriptive. Hopefully enough people know what's going o­n now to understand what a radio link is!

Any comments or other preferences please post in the forum.

Many thanks,

Dean & TJ
