To use a repeater you need to listen to its transmitter frequency and transmit on its receive frequency. This can be confusing so these are the settings you need for your radio.
Transmit on 438.450MHz, receive on 430.850MHz and select a CTCSS tone of 82.5Hz.
On many radios, you select the receive frequency of 430.850MHz and an offset of plus 7.6MHz with a tone of 82.5Hz. You can use tone squelch if your radio has this function as the repeater transmits a CTCSS tone of 82.5Hz.
GB3FC can be linked to using Allstar node number 565450 and EchoLink GB3FC-R node 849314
