Today I received notification that Yaesu had changed the call sign on my HRI-200 to MB6IEW.
Time then to start and test the new gateway
First I changed the call sign and room name for the HRI-200. The system checks with Yaesu prior to enabling the change. Then I added the assigned frequency 434.475Mhz and set the radio to narrow FM.
Next step was to reload the radio into HRI mode and restarted the wires x software.
Next step was to try and connect. I used my FT2D programmed for the new frequency and connected to the MB6IEA-GW node. So far so good
Next I tried to connect to the node room, MB6IEA-ROOM, whcih also worked.
I used my FT-991 to check the bandwidth transmitted by the gateway, which looked fine.
So then updated the status on UKRepeater.net to first start and the gateway is now operational
