GB7CW is connected to the South West Cluster. This has enhanced the current coverage of the Cluster into South Wales where in some places there was no coverage previously. By having GB7CW connected the the Cluster we can now use Roaming features when travelling Mobile to Roam between the differenct repeaters sat on the network.
Currently there are 5 other repeaters on the network, these being GB7AA, GB7BS, GB7DR, GB7JB, GB7KT, GB7MJ, GB7SD. For further information on programming GB7CW into your radio and the rest of the Cluster network please take a look at the Getting Started Tab above. Coverage of the Cluster can be seen Below. GB7ED,

The concept of linking repeaters is not new, and with the recent and rapid growth in Digital Mobile Radio repeaters here in the UK, linking them is probably a natural step in their development.

Digital mobile radio "DMR"
Digital mobile radio (DMR) is an open digital mobile radio standard defined in the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Standard TS 102 361 parts 1–4 and used in commercial products around the world. DMR, along with P25 phase II and NXDN are the main competitor technologies in achieving 6.25 kHz equivalent bandwidth using the proprietary AMBE+2 vocoder. DMR and P25 II both use two-slot TDMA in a 12.5 kHz channel, while NXDN uses discrete 6.25 kHz channels using frequency division. The standard has become popular within the amateur radio community due to the relative lower cost and complexity compared to other commercial digital modes.
DMR was designed with three tiers. DMR tiers I and II (conventional) were first published in 2005, and DMR III (Trunked version) was published in 2012, with manufacturers producing products within a few years of each publication.
The primary goal of the standard is to specify a digital system with low complexity, low cost and interoperability across brands, so radio communications purchasers are not locked into a proprietary solution. In practice, many brands have not adhered to this open standard and have introduced proprietary features that make their product offerings non-interoperable. WIKI
