User Commands
NOTE: These commands do not apply to the RF linked repeaters.
 
The PNW220 repeaters are controlled by DTMF commands consisting of one or more digits followed by a number sign.
 
The system is divided into several modules each performing a specific task.
You activate a module by sending its module ID followed by a number sign.
 
Most modules will play their help message if a 0 is sent while the module is active.
 
    Identify Repeater
 
        Identify repeater and give date and time.
 
Sending a single star will make the system identify itself.
 
 
    System Help
0#      Activate system Help
 
Send # to leave help.
 
    Parrot
1#      Activate Parrot
01#   Help on Parrot module
 
The parrot module plays back everything you say. This can be used as a simplex repeater or just to hear how your modulation sounds.
 
If you send a DTMF command to the Parrot module it will read back the received digits.

    Meteorological Terminal Air Report (METAR)
5#      Activate METAR information
05#    Help on METAR
 
With Metar information you are able to request worldwide weather information from ICAO weatherstations provided by NOAA.
 
Currently available stations are:
 
#                    1#       2#       3#       4#       5#       6#     7#
AIRPORTS=KSEA,KOLM,KPAE,KPDX,KAST,KBVS,KBLI
 
To get a list of predefined stations send 01# while the METAR module is active.
 
To request METAR info from an available station issue the station number followed by a #.
 
Example:  For Bellingham activate METAR with 5# and send 7# after it's active.
 
Not issuing a station number will result in a default of KSEA.
 
Send a single number sign to leave the module.
 
    Additional non module related commands
 
In addition there are a number of built-in commands not associated with modules
that return information about the repeater.
