[ Important Repeater Link Usage and Information ]

This is a semi-duplex and requires the calling station to key up and pause for a second or two before making your transmission. This will give the system the necessary time to open up the link between the 147.120 and the 449.600 Repeaters. Also before keying up please wait for the links to drop other wise the stays open and you will not be heard on both repeaters.
