The repeater is back online. Thank you Andrew (K1YMI) for fixing the issue in such a short time. Please program your radios for PL of 100Hz.
The repeater has a couple of changes … 1st and foremost… PL is ENABLED. 100Hz PL is needed for access. It also transmits 100Hz as most radios now have a CTCSS search feature that allows the radio to find the PL to use.
For Nets on Tuesday, No PL is needed. The controller will turn off the PL requirement at 6:50 pm and then turn it back on at 8:00 pm Later on that feature could be removed if not needed.
We suggest to just program the repeater freq and PL into a memory and then it’s always set. It does not matter if you transmit PL when it’s not needed.
The repeater port and (future) link port are now linked together so when Andrew (K1YMI) finish setting up the link radio it *should* need no extra work.
Every hour the controller is announcing “100 Hz PL” … If there is a QSO going on at the time the QSO will override the announcement.
Every 15 overs the controller will announce “Net Tuesday at 7pm”. As above the QSO has priority and if someone keys up it will stop the announcement.
