Set your HPB450 up as you usually would. Bring your Trimark 3 to the point from which you want to rebroadcast (this point being within range of the signal of the HPB) and set it to the same frequency. Now push the mode button until the T3 says "repeater 1" and it will pick up (any) signal on that freq and rebrodcast it. If you want to get fancy, depending on your bps you can add a second repeater. This is covered in pages 13, 17, and 36 of the manual. Note: if you are usting full RTCM 2.x messages, you can't use a repeater at 4800bps ... verify you are on CMR. CMR and 9600bps allows you to set up 2; I've never tried that.
I got that repeater set up as you advised, works great...Thanks Again, Paul
I'm happy to hear that. Repeater really extends the range! We call it bank shots like in pool (billiards) since we can now reach around mountain corners and the like.
