I just have finished an update of my last 10m-repeaterlist WW 4.99. You can find many news and corrections of my last list. Thanks for all the informations and news for my 10m-Repeaterlist, I have received via e-mail or Packet Radio to


The new list includes THE ARRL REPEATER DIRECTORY 1999/2000 EDITION and it is sorted to 10m-output frequencies. Quickly you can find now the 10m-repeaters working on the same frequency. Please send me your corrections, news and updates (tx-pwr, tx-qth, tx and rx-locator, use of antennas to tx and the rx-side, CW-ID?, link on what band? and additional input-frequencies from other repeaters on 6m, 2m, 220mhz and 23cm-bands, using ctcss-tone on the repeater, voice-messages and so on).

Since the number of active 29 MHz repeaters in Region 1 is increasing and applications for new ones are continuously dropping in, it seems necessary to coordinate them on Region 1 level.

The main policy for the coordinator is, that he shall do his best to make it possible for all radio amateurs interested in 29 MHz FM repeaters to get an allocation where they do not cause interference to other repeaters or modes.

It is important for the coordinator to keep and update a list of repeaters. The Region 1 member societies should therefore provide information about changes of the 29 MHz FM Repeater situation in their countries for the coordinator.


The written determination of the regional and the national frequency coordination body shall prevail and be considered good amateur operating practice.

The regional frequency coordination body of IARU Region 1 is the 29 MHz MF Repeater Coordinator, nominated by and member of the HF Committee. Name, callsign and address are published in each number of Region 1 News.

The national frequency coordination is carried out in deliberation with the Region 1 Coordinator by a body nominated by the national member society.

The distance between two repeaters using the same frequency pair should be at least 250 km.

If the distance of a repeater-location to the boarder of a neighboring country is less than 250 km, the HF Committee or the neighboring national society must be consulted for coordination.

Access to the repeaters shall always be possible with a 1750 Hz tone. Other access methods (DTMF tones) may be allowed in parallel with the standard 1750 Hz.

If a radio link is used between the repeaters RX and TX it is advisable to use a subtone system (CTCSS).

The holder of a 29 MHz Repeater license is free to switch off the repeater when it is misused or if the repeater in normal conditions causes interference with another one.


Repeaters are primarily intended to facilitate mobile operation. Mobile traffic shall always have priority.

If you can hear each other on the in-frequency - QSY to a simplex frequency.

Never occupy a repeater if simplex traffic is possible, because that prevents others from using it.

Use the minimum amount of power necessary to maintain contact.

Monitor the repeater in order to become familiar with any peculiarities in its operation.

There is no need for long calls. Just simply indicate that you are on the repeater.

Identify legally. You must identify at least every 10 minutes during a contact and at the end of it.

Pause between transmissions to allow other hams to break in and gain access to repeater too.

Be thoughtful and keep the transmissions as short as possible. Be aware that your transmissions are monitored by many listeners.

Don't give the amateur radio hobby a bad reputation!

The purpose of CTCSS (PL)™ is to reduce co-channel interference during band openings. CTCSS (PL)™ equipped repeaters would respond only to signals having the CTCSS tone required for that repeater. These repeaters would not respond to weak distant signals on their inputs and correspondingly not transmit and repeat to add to the congestion. The standard Electronic Industries Association (EIA) frequency codes, in hertz, with their Motorola alphanumeric designators, are as follows: (see the Call Area list!)

During 1980 the ARRL Board of Directors adopted the 10-meter CTCSS (PL)™ tone-controlled squelch frequencies listed below for voluntary incorporation into 10-meter repeater systems to provide a uniform national system.

This chapter covers a basic course in "repeater-speak" and explains many of the terms heard on your local repeater. Read on and enjoy!

Definitions of the words and phrases commonly used on repeaters:

Autopatch - A device that interfaces the repeater system with the telephone system to extend ham communication over the telephone communication network.

Breaker - A ham who interjects his call sign during a QSO in an attempt to get a chance to communicate over a repeater.

Channel - The pair of frequencies (input and output) a repeater operates on.

Closed Repeater - A repeater whose use is limited to certain individuals.

These are completely legal under FCC Rules.

Control Operator - An individual ham designated to "control" the repeater, as required by FCC regulations.

COR - Carrier-Operated-Relay, a device that, upon sensing a received signal, turns on the repeater's transmitter to repeat the received signal.

Courtesy Tone - A short tone sounded after each repeater transmission to permit other stations to gain access to the repeater before the tone sounds.

Coverage - The geographical area in which the repeater may be used for communication.

CTCSS - Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System, a subaudible tone system which operates the squelch (COR) of a repeater when the corresponding subaudible tone is present on a transmitted signal. The squelch on a repeater that uses CTCSS will not activate if the improper CTCSS tone, or if no tone, is transmitted.

Crossband - Communication to another frequency band by means of a link interfaced with the repeater.

Desense - Degradation of receiver sensitivity caused by strong unwanted signals reaching the receiver front end.

Duplexer - A device that permits the use of one antenna for both transmitting and receiving with minimal degradation to either the incoming or outgoing signals.

Frequency Synthesis - A scheme of frequency generation in modern transceivers using digital techniques.

Full Quieting - Signal strength in excess of the amount required to mask ambient noise.

Hand-Held - A portable FM transceiver that is small enough to use and carry in one hand.

Input - The frequency the repeater receiver is tuned to: The frequency that a repeater user transmits on.

Intermod - Interference caused by spurious signals generated by intermodulation distortion in a receiver front end or transmitter power amplifier stage.

Key-Up - Turning on a repeater by transmitting on its input frequency.

LiTZ - Long Tone Zero (LiTZ) Alerting system. Send DTMF zero (0) for at least three seconds to request emergency/urgent assistance.

Machine - The complete repeater system.

Mag-Mount - A mobile antenna with a magnetic base that permits quick installation and removal from the motor vehicle.

Offset - The spacing between a repeater's input and output

Omnidirectional - An antenna system that radiates equally in all directions.

Output - The frequency the repeater transmits on; the frequency that a repeater user receives on.

Picket-Fencing - Rapid flutter on a mobile signal as it travels past an obstruction.

Polarization - The plane an antenna system operates in; most repeaters are vertically polarized.

Reverse Autopatch - A device that interfaces the repeater with the telephone system and permits users of the phone system to call the repeater and converse with on-the-air repeater users.

RPT/R - Abbreviation used after repeater call signs to indicate that the call sign is being used for repeater operation.

Simplex - Communication on one frequency, not via a repeater.

Split Sites - The use of two locations for repeater operation (the receiver is at one site and the transmitter at another), and the two are linked by telephone or radio.

Squelch Tail - The noise burst that follows the short, unmodulated carrier following each repeater transmission.

Time-Out-Timer - A device that limits the length of a single repeater transmission (usually 3 minutes).

Tone Pad - A device that generates the standard telephone system tones used for controlling various repeater functions.
