MB6CL has now closed down.
Please remember all D-Star links and gateways run a 3 minuite timeout.
Today 6/Feb/2014 after a 4 year wait I now have the NOV for MB6CL
MB6CL is on 430.1875
To access MB6CL, this is what you need to put into your radio:
RPT1: MB6CL--B "note the -- is 2x spaces"
RPT2: MB6CL--G "note the -- is 2x spaces"
MY: Your callsign
The -- represents two spaces You must also set a + or - duplex of 0.000mhz for it to work.
The DTMF code of MB6CL is 34222
You can use DTMF to connect to any reflectors
# Unlink 0 Status of linking Reconnect to default connection (REF001C) = **
B1A to link to XRF001 A UK based Xreflector
D5B to link to DCS005 B UK DCS Reflector
*14B to link to REF014 B VK Dplus Reflector
*1C to link to REF001 C USA Dplus Reflector
All of the above DTMF commands will work on MB6CL and MB6DS
If MB6CL is left on any reflector without local use for over 30 minutes, the gateway will clear the connection and re connect to REF030C
If you would like MB6CL to default back to any other reflector just email me. I do understand that after being on the same reflector for a while you hear the same hams every day.

MB6CL Equipment and setup
MB6CL D Star simplex gateway uses a Yaesu 7800 and is connected to a DVRPT V3 that is controlled by a Raspberry Pi that is running Jonathan Nailer G4KLX software.
I have had a re think on the radios used on both my Echolink and D-Star gateways. I have now replaced both the Motorola GM300's with Yaesu 7800's I am able to set the TX power on these without the over heating problems I was getting setting the GM300's so low.
I have just got one of the new DVRPRT V3 board and housings for the MB6CL D-Star gateway
The DVRPT V3 is connected to a Raspberry Pi
And for the shack Icom ID-5100 & ID 51
And in the truck the Icom ID-5100
And a DV-Mega in the truck when out of range of a gateway
Need help with DR mode on your Icom 5100 or 7100 radios ? Watch this video

New to D-Star ?
Watch the following 3 videos, quite long but well worth watching to give you a solid understanding of D-Star from how the system works to programming your radio.

Where are the D Star gateways and repeater in Essex ?
The X on the map showing locations are not exact
GB7TE Clacton on Sea Input 145.175 MHz, Output 145.775 MHz
GB3TE has suffered interference for some time now and in the last 18 month it is showing under 3 hours total use. A application was put in to upgrade it to Dstar. A new callsign was issued GB7TE. The frequency will stay the same.
To program your radio to use GB7TE
RPT1: GB7TE--B "note the -- is 2x spaces"
RPT2: GB7TE--G "note the -- is 2x spaces"
MY: Your callsign
The -- represents two spaces.
Here is the coverage map. Click on map for XL size.
As you can see GB7TE will have good coverage from Ipswich down to Southend and over into Kent.
