Repeater Information

The three Westmister repeaters operate off of a common controller. The 2m and 6m machines operate PL from 2300 - 0600 and as needed due to conditions. All three machines generate the indicated tone full time. The 147.285 repeater runs COS full time. Each Tuesday and Wednesday at 2030 the Westminster repeaters will cross-link for the two nets the club sponsors.

  • Westminster: 145.410 (114.8) (Motorola Quantar)
  • Westminster: 449.875 (127.3) FM/C4FM Fusion (Yeasu DR1X)
  • Westminster: 53.090 (107.2) (GE MASTR EXEC)
  • Sykesville: 147.285 (Hybrid machine assembled from parts)

The repeaters all have a typical 3 minute time out timer that resets as the beep is heard between transmissions. The Westminster 2m and 70cm machines also have a failsafe timer that will activate if the transmitter does not un-key for 1 second every 20 minutes. This is to prevent a short or other problem from damaging the equipment. If you leave just a little extra pause every time you ID that allows the repeater to drop you should never encounter these timers.

The codes to link and unlink the repeaters are available on request. Please ID before using any codes and remember to turn off the links when done.
