Hi all,

I'm investigating linking a 23cm repeater (GB3PS) and a 6m repeater (GB3PX) here in Cambridge UK with each other.  They are both on the same site and in racks next to each other. http://www.cambridgerepeaters.net/

I was looking to do this by software if possible as it's something 'new' to try.  I don't mind if it's linux, windows or even DOS based.

I did look at EchoStation here http://www.synergenics.com/sc/ but it doesn't allow linking.  The idea would be controlling the link by DTMF with timeouts etc being controlled in the software. COM port or LPT would handle the RX detects and TX signals. 2 soundcards would be required to control the audio routing too.

Does anyone know of any such software available?

Thanks,

Gavin, M1BXF

Maybe the "simplex" software at this site:

I you have two repeaters, you have two repeater controllers.  If both controllers have a link radio port, why not explore simply cross connecting the ports?  Kind of like a null modem cable between computers.
