When using the repeater, please observe
the following guidelines:
1. AT NO TIME WILL PROFANITY, LEWD LANGUAGE OR
DISTASTEFUL BEHAVIOR be permitted on the repeater. Please
keep in mind, that this is a FAMILY REPEATER, and is being monitored by
children and public officials.
2. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Be courteous to
others, even if you are correct and they are wrong.
3. Do not say negative things about other folks or other groups.
If the repeater is in use and you have emergency traffic, say the word
"Break" or your Callsign after the previous callers transmission.
5. If you are in QSO and hear someone saying "Break" or their Callsign,
ackowledge the break and standby.
Please wait for the squelch tail "Courtesy Beep" before responding
during a QSO. This both prevents the repeater from timing out, and
allows others a chance to break in.
7. The repeater uses a two and half minute timer. Be sure to keep your
transmissions shorter than the timer.
8. If you experience malicious interference, DO NOT

applicable. Report all interference information to the repeater trustee
at n6uso @ officer . com

there are those who wish to "JAM" the repeater or transmit without
identifying. Tracking down a low level, low power signal is very
difficult due to the wide coverage that 145.440 has. Each user or
listener can have an active role in tracking down the offending
KEEPING THE REPEATER FREE FROM ABUSE IS THE
BUSINESS OF ALL LICENSED HAM'S, PLEASE HELP LOCATE THE OFFENDERS. These guidelines are STANDARD AMATEUR RADIO
COURTESIES. I hope you enjoy the repeater.
