Autopatch Guide

The auto-patch system is connected to the VE6VPR repeater (145.290- 100.0Hz CTCSS). The auto-patch system requires an access code (A) and then a command digit (0 through 3) to be entered from your DTMF pad to activate (and deactivate) the system.

Note: It is the Club's intention to leave the VE6VPR repeater "stand-alone" for Auto-Patch and general communications. The VE6VPR repeater will not be linked to any of the other Club repeaters.
