The OH-KY-IN Repeater System
The OH-KY-IN Repeater System currently consists of (3) VHF 2m-band (146 MHz) repeaters (see map):
146.625 MHz in Withamsville (East)
146.670 MHz in Clifton (Central)
146.925 MHz in Colerain Township (North)
All OH-KY-IN 2m repeaters are in the 146 MHz sub-band, so YOUR TRANSMIT frequency will be 600 kHz BELOW these frequencies (a NEGATIVE offset..."-").
ALL OH-KY-IN repeaters utilize a 123Hz CTCSS ("PL") tone for access. Set your radio's TRANSMIT TONE ENCODER to 123 Hz, or you will not be able to bring up an OH-KY-IN repeater.
All OH-KY-IN repeaters also transmit a 123 Hz tone. You can use this to "filter out" non-OH-KY-IN repeater traffic that may appear on the receive frequency from time to time. Set your radio's RECEIVE TONE DECODER to 123 Hz to utilize this feature.
All OH-KY-IN repeaters have many other special features. To obtain a list of repeater user codes, go HERE.
More to Come...
We are currently in the process of constructing a UHF 73cm-band (440 MHz) repeater, to be located at a site near the 146.670 location. There will be a period of testing required and you can help. Look for the announcement HERE soon.
