GB7AN is located just North of Accrington, the NOV holder is Neil Mooney M0NFI. The repeater is a Yaesu DR-1X connected to a HRI-200 interface and a Windows 10 virtual machine to give full Yaesu Wires-X connectivity. The repeater can be moved to any Wires-X room by users and will return home to The North West Fusion Group room 44222 after a period of inactivity. If you are using a Pi-Star type hotspot or repeater NWFG is YSF26499 (GB NWFG).
If users want a local only QSO please connect to the local room GB7AN-ROOM 88570. This will allow local users to chat without their QSO going over the network to many other repeaters.
If a user moves the repeater to another room and has finished their QSO please disconnect the repeater from the room so it will return to its default room.
The GB7AN Repeater status page shows which room the repeater is connected to and how many nodes are in that room.
Please see our Fusion page where we've linked to videos on how to operate several Yaesu radios.

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 439.4625MHz, receive on 430.4625MHz, and select DN or VW on your radio. VW is preferred as it produces better-quality audio.
On many radios, you select the receive frequency of 439.4625MHz and an offset of minus 9MHz.
