New Repeater

General News

 

 

 

Good morning everyone,

 

With the excitement of the new 441.775 repeater coming online it has been brought to my attention that the repeater is being "kerchunked" quite a bit.

 

While this is common place it has been exacerbated with the new machine. I would like to remind everyone that it is not good repeater etiquette (or FCC legal) to simply "kerchunk" the repeater without identifying.

 

If you are testing your rig or trying to see how well the repeater is working in your area the correct (and FCC legal) way to do so would be to identify using your call sign and state that you are testing.
