Internet Link

The TETRA gateway is linked to the internet via SVXLink to a global network of Tetra Repeaters in Australia, other countries, and to Echolink. There are a number of talk groups available within the system.

You can view the current Tetra System Dashboard here: VK TETRA Dashboard

By default, the gateway listens on TG 505 (Australia). If someone changes the talk group to something other than 505 and no audio is transmitted or received after 30 seconds the gateway will revert back to TG 505.

Additional talk groups are available. You can see the list of available talkgroups on the Talkgroups page
