NARC Repeater Linking

The six repeater controllers are:

  • Controller #1 - VE6HM (actually a controller pair noted as 1A and 1B)
  • Controller #2 - VE6UV
  • Controller #3 - VE6PLP
  • Controller #4 - VE6JN
  • Controller #5 - VE6TNC
  • Controller #6 - VE6LRN

The codes are:

  • VE6UV 20* unlinks and 21* links

  • VE6JN 40* unlinks and 41* links
  • VE6TNC 50* unlinks and 51* links
  • VE6LRN 60* unlinks and 61* links / 6A* Date time
  • VE6HM (1.25M) 1A40* unlinks and 1A41* links
  • VE6HM (6M) 1B20* unlinks and 1B21* links (note: only works from the 6 meter side)

Repeater Time/Date read back

Notes:

Commands use a final "*" to ensure "noise" doesn't cause linking or unlinking.

The codes for the HM site controller (#1) have and additional character, A or B for the half of the controller pair, and a third character for the port number.

The 220 repeater is currently always linked, and it also gets all error messages the controller sends out (they are blocked on other ports). We use it because so few people monitor it.
