VE7RPT 443.525 MHz (+5 MHz) (PL 136.5Hz*)

This repeater can be (and usually is) linked to RPT-VHF for cross-band operations.

This machine was upgraded (again) in 2006 to a full Micor station, with unified chassis.

This repeater is coupled to the same receive antenna as the VE7RAG-UHF D-STAR repeater. It utilizes a Sinclair receiver multi-coupler achieve this.

The power output has been set to run 45W.

This machine is battery backed and has autopatch access.

*The machine is normally configured for carrier access (no tone required). However, it does transmit a PL tone of 136.5Hz on its output. This allows users to set their radios for PL decode to reduce intermod problems (in their radio).
