  • 147.360 MHz +600 Hz is located on a tower owned by Joanna, N2QFT, and Dick, KD2DXQ. If you don’t use CTCSS, it operates as a local, but wide area repeater. If you send 91.5 Hz CTCSS, then you are going out on the New York State Network, which is a system of repeaters across upstate New York. The repeater also has a weather receiver with a WD-100 decoder to rebroadcast urgent watches and warnings.
