K2ATT/R Repeater Rules and User's Guide


The K2ATT repeater is maintained by the K2ATT, WB2QGZ, W2YMM
We ask  that you follow these simple rules:
  • Follow all FCC regulations. We mean all of them!
  • Key up for about one second before speaking, There is a Kerchunk filter, and the first part of your transmission may be cut off.
  • Please identify before you send any DTMF commands to the repeater. It really bugs the control operators when an unidentified station starts sending a command string to the repeater. Such activity will be reported as malicious interference.
  • Don't try to "hack" the repeater. All repeater commands intended for general use will be listed on the EchoIRLP page as they become available. The other users of the repeater will find it extremely annoying if you start sending random commands to try to figure out if there are more of them and will report it as malicious interference to the FCC.
  • Be courteous to other users. Please.
  • Leave pauses between transmissions.
  • Please try to use the same PL tone as the other station your are communicating with.  The 2 different PL tones have different timers involved.
  • All transmissions are recorded and saved offsite.
