GB3OA website changes

This website has been given a general tidy up, and some confusing text rewritten. Also there are a number of additions. This includes, on the Internet Linking page, the important fact that although the timeout of the repeater in RF-RF mode is five minutes, the timeout in RF-Echolink mode is four minutes. If an over extends beyond four minutes the link with the Echolink station is automatically disconnected and OA announces a COSLOCK error.

If a user receives this error they should consider reducing the length of their overs whilst on the repeater – usually three minutes is plenty for an over on a repeater.

In RF-IRLP mode the timeout remains at five minutes and no disconnection occurs if exceeded.

A link to an explanation of OA’s error codes is now at the foot of the Internet Linking page.
