WiRES-X AccessThe repeater defaults to room #21080 "America Link". To access other "rooms" or "nodes", press and hold the "WiRES-X" button. After linking with the repeater, you will hear the repeater answer you. Click on the "Down Arrow" in the middle of your screen (hold the ENT button if using a FT-1D). After conversing with the repeater, this will provide you a menu where you can select a node or select "Search and Direct". As you scroll through the available nodes, you can either select or continue to the next batch (the WiRES-X provides about 20 each time). To go to the next batch, simply scroll to the last node, it will begin flashing. This is the radio communicating to the repeater to send the next batch. Once you have selected a node, you will again hear the response from the repeater and will see the node now displayed on your radio. Please refer to the manual for your radio as this was a very basic instruction based on the FTM-400D.

Still the most popular mode....
Even with the tremendous influx of Chinese digital radio (primarily DMR), the conventional analog repeaters are still the most available and easiest to use mode. Sometimes these repeaters will be "linked" to other repeaters to form a wider coverage area or through the internet. Internet "linking" using AllStar or EchoLink is quite common as demonstrated by the 444.9875 repeater in Gainesville.
Some digital repeaters are able to do dual mode,i.e. function as an Analog and a Digital repeater. These repeaters can be configured by the SYSOP as in the 444.8375 DMR repeater. This repeater, when not being used for digital DMR, can be used as a conventional analog repeater. If you program this "analog" channel in your radio, do not forget to set your receiver to the 123.0 PL tone or you will hear the digital burst noise created by the DMR channel.
