Repeaters: Gloversville, NY 146.700 (-) PL: 123.0 | Town of Florida, Amsterdam NY 146.970 (-) PL: 123.0 | Northville, NY 146.835 (-) PL: 123.0

CTCSS encode enabled on the club repeater.

Thanks to Andrew (KC2EUS) and Otto (WA2RQC) the repeater is now transmitting a 100Hz CTCSS tone. This change is one of the steps needed for the EchoLink/IRLP node merge.
In addition, for interference free listening set your radio CTCSS decoder to 100Hz, this will eliminate interference from other repeaters and QRM.
