GB7WM C4FM FUSION REPEATER

GB7WM is West Manchester Radio Clubs UHF repeater based at the Club QTH. The repeater was initalised on 29th may 2020, currently running C4FM RF only.
The repeater uses channel DVU 55 in the Digital only 9Mhz split section of 70cm.
The repeater transmits on 439.6875 MHz and receives on 430.6875 MHz.

So, with most radios, set the frequency (receive) to 439.6875 and then set the duplex frequency to 430.6875 (Or possibly on some radios the split to 9.00Mhz minus).
The repeater is a Yaesu DR-1X and is connected to the Wires-X network.
GB7WM-RPT is DTMF 57632
GB7WM-ROOM is DTMF 67632
The repeater currently defaults back to the NW Fusion Group room 41755 if idle.

The repeater is at Astley, just off the East Lancs A580 at 54° 30' 22"N by 02° 28' 19"E
