Tone squelch set to 141.3 Hz on 146.91 MHz repeater output

  • Print

Paul Prestia, KA3OPZ informed the FWRC websmaster that he has configured a continuous tone-coded squelch system (CTCSS) tone of 141.3 Hz on the output of the FWRC repeater on 146.91 MHz, located on the campus of IPFW.

The repeater's input continues to operate on carrier squelch, which means CTCSS is not required to use the repeater. The tone on the output, however, will allow users to optionally configure their radios to remain silent except when the repeater is transmitting, thus preventing the reception of intermodulation interference, distant repeaters on the same frequency, etc.

The table below reflects the current CTCSS status of all FWRC repeaters as of today:

Repeater (MHz) Repeater input CTCSS (Hz) & status Repeater output CTCSS (Hz) & status
444.875 141.3, required 141.3, present
146.76 141.3, optional 141.3, present
146.94 None 141.3, present
146.91 None 141.3, present
