CCARC runs four repeaters, call sign K3PZN, three in Westminster and one in Sykesville. Westminster’s 2 m and 6 m repeaters require a PL tone from 2300 – 0600 hours and as needed due to conditions. Westminster’s 70 cm repeater handles C4FM as well as analog. The repeaters are cross linked for all nets.
- Westminster: 145.410 MHz, “-” offset 600 KHz, PL 114.8 Hz
- Westminster: 449.875, “-” offset 5 MHz, PL 127.3 Hz, FM& C4FM
- Westminster: 53.090 “-” offset 1MHz, PL 107.2 Hz
- Sykesville: 147.285 “+” offset 600 KHz, PL 107.2 Hz
All repeaters have a three (3) minute time out and the Westminster 2m and 70cm machines also have a 20 minute fail-safe time-out to prevent a short or other problem from damaging the equipment.
