Hi radio folks, time again to sound off with your callsign to get in on the fun.
I’ll be bringing my 70cm repeater again this year. The antenna 20’ up a tree seemed to have pretty good reach last year.
440.275 MHz, PL 100.0 (standard +5.0MHz offset)
I’m also planning on bringing my FT-891 and G5RV for some HF action. Feel free to stop by and get on the air. If you don’t have your General+ catch me when I’m around to act as control and use my callsign.
“Official” Simplex: 147.420 MHz, PL tone 123.0 Hz.
The easy to remember mnemonic “one four seven blaze it” courtesy of @WoofyTheBunny. This frequency happens to be the alternate US calling frequency, so it should never crash with any repeater, but it’s unlikely to be in use.
If you’re attending CFT and have a license, comment below so I can add you to the list.
