VK6-HUB

The VK6-HUB is a series of Allstar nodes that link several different internet radio platforms and repeaters together. It can be connected into using either Allstar, DMR or Echolink via the node numbers/names below. The hub allows many nodes to connect and interact without having bandwidth limitations associated with slower home internet connections.

Allstar: VK6-HUB (42732)
Map: VK6-HUB (42732)
DMR: VK6RX – Brandmeister Talk Group 505005 (42716)
Echolink: *VK6-HUB* – 9610 (42717)
*NEW* Listen via Broadcastify in your Web Browser or via the app here.
*BROKEN (as of Oct 2019)* Listen via your web browser using Hose Line (a Brandmeister Service).

Normally the VK6-HUB  is connected to VK6ZGN’s (Bob) Allstar node 28608 which provides a radio path to VK6RLM 146.750 (146.150 input). The hub is also normally connected to the SW-Hub (South West) 42842 (also hosted on the same server), but this hub is a point for repeaters and nodes in the South West of Western Australia to connect into.

Many thanks to Mal, VK8MT for providing the Supermon site and Bob, VK6ZGN for providing the link into VK6RLM. And also thanks to all the hams that have setup and are maintaining nodes that connect into the hubs.
