Little Mtn 448.575 repeater now has an autopatch


The control codes are:

AB1 - open autopatch

AB0 - handup autopatch

The autopatch has a 2 1/2 min timeout so talk fast. If you time out the patch it will hang up the phone line but will continue to keep the repeater transmitting. If this happens please send the repeater the AB0 handup code to shut it off. 

 There are two ways to make a call. The first way is to send AB0xxxxxxxxxx all in one string. The 2nd way is to send AB0, wait for the dial tone and then dial your number xxxxxxxxxx. 

The autopatch will only make local calls.

If you send 100 to the repeater it will tell you the time and temperature and battery voltage.

Everyday at 8am, 12pm (noon), and 6pm it will ID itself and announce the time, temperature, and battery voltage. 

If you do not know how to send an A or B, they are on your radio. Your normal phone will not have these, but all radios have them. Look carefully on your keypad. 


Mt Ogden Repeaters

The Mt Ogden 70 cm 448.600 MHz repeater is now once again operational as is the 2 meter 146.90 MHz repeater.


CW Class ?

OARC is considering starting a CW (Morse Code) study group in the future.

Stay tuned for further information if you are interested.
