The KCRA will has implemented our system-wide tone requirement of 131.8
Hz. This means that you will need to program
your radios to trasmit the 131.8 tone in order to access our repeaters.
During the next week we will be reprogramming and recloning the SAR
radios to meet the new tone requirements.
Once activated the tone will be on permanently on our Sky Meadows VHF
and UHF repeaters (147.360 and 442.200 mHz) and activated when needed on
our Ellensburg 146.720 repeater. At least initially, until the system
linkage is complete, we'll try to run the Ellensburg repeater without the
tone, in consideration of those without tone-equipped radios. However,
if there is any interference on the Ellensburg machine, either locally
manmade or from distant repeaters activating it, as sometimes happens in
the fall, the tone requirement will be activated and remain on.
Thanks for your support
