Frequency Pair

Greetings all, 

We received the letter from CCARC today notifying us that we have been granted our official frequency pair for the WØNED repeater project.  Thanks to everyone who has supported the club in making this happen, and special thanks to our club Trustee, John (KD6CFW) for persevering and navigating through the tedious CCARC online forms to submit the request.

We are not announcing the frequencies to the public just yet.  We will be announcing the frequency pair (and hopefully the yet to be decided upon PL tone we will use) at the March club meeting on the 22nd, when I will be presenting on the progress and scope of the project.  Please join us if you are able.

For now, suffice to say that we are in the very respectable neighborhood of 449 MHz, with a negative offset.  So get your UHF and dual band radios dusted off and tuned up. 

We still have a long way to go toward getting the repeater up and running at the repeater site, but this is a major step, and this will allow Doug to get the repeater and duplexer tuned and working on our actual frequencies in the lab environment.

Thanks again to all, and please reach out with any questions.
