VXR-7000 Community Repeater

Post by joehoose2700 » Fri May 02, 2014 4:06 pm


I'm a bit new to repeaters/Vertex (I usually work on Kenwood portables). I want to add a few extra "sub-channels" to my Vertex VXR-7000 for different groups at my location to talk. I'm not sure if I add a second CHANNEL with the same frequency but different DPL tones, or if I use the Multi-Tone on the same channel and frequency.

It's my understanding that, when I use the Community option, I can have different groups use the repeater and have their own conversations without hearing others? The only thing is that different tones can't transmit simultaneously. Is this all correct?

If I add in a second CHANNEL/Frequency, does the repeater have to be switched to that channel for it to repeat? Or is the channel change option on the front just to be able to listen through the built-in speaker?

Thank you so much for your help!

In the software there is a menu for multi tone panel. There you can add your choice of Pl or DCS for different users. If you have it set to CW ID, it will Id on last use PL/DCS.
