Technically speaking the Greemount repeater is on the 6IP network, and the Red Hill repeater is on 6AR. The networks linked full-time nowadays but they do have the ability to split the metro/career 6AR from the outer metro/BFB 6IP, so it's worth having both channels programmed.

thanks for that vk6hgr :) that actually helps me alot, i think i recall reading that 6IP can be split for rural and BFB and 6AR the Metro DFES during busy periods (Summer) and in crisis scenarios to help cope with the higher flow of traffic, less strain on he operators, correct me if im wrong?

To be fair it's not 6IP is BFB and 6AR is DFES metro, if and whenever they split, the call sign you would use would be dependant on the channel you are on not the colour of your truck.

I would also ask that you remove or resize your signature image as it is far too big.
