When camping I would like to be able to link-up with a repeater when I'm away from my truck and Cross Banding my FT-8900 with Kenwood TH-F6 may be the answer. I've been reading up and thanks to Gary Pearce, KN4AQ, Getting Started - Cross Band Repeat, Extract SERA Repeater Journal I have a fairly good understanding of what to expect with cross banding radios. The only question I have about cross banding radios with repeaters is what to do about the repeater hang time. That several second pause when the repeater stays on the air before dropping off. Any suggestions about to address the repeater hang time would be appreciated.

ps: Merry Christmas Everyone
