home page Link)
& the APRS digi-peater on 144.39
Mt. Kinport located 6 miles SW of the I-15 Center Street Exit (69) at 7200 feet.
It operates on 147.360 +600kHz offset ... 100Hz Pl required
This repeater has a 10 meter FM Link on 29.600mhz
LINK Information. please understand,
29.600mHz is 10 meters.. This is the FM Calling frequencies.
10 meters does have world wide propagation (at times), so if your setting around, with nothing to do
turn the link on and see if anything is bouncing off the ionosphere . The 10 meter link radio is a GE Master Executive II mobile,
running about 50 watts to a vertical dipole
How to tell which band a signal is on
if the link is on
a station on 10 meters will cause a Hi & Low Beep, "like" a BEEP BOOP sound.. , at the end of his transmission
a 2 meter station will cause a single BEEP at the end of his transmission , A single beep also indicates the 3 minute timer has been reset.
When a Link is on, any traffic or QSO occurring on 2 meters
is transmitted on 10 meters as well as two meters
if someone out there in "radio land" hears you, you'll probably have breaking station wanting to take advantage of the propagation.
Don't ignore breakers, you never know where the signal is going..
010 turns on the 10 meter link
000 turns OFF 10meters
other test codes 123 tests your audio.
Press 123, unkey your radio, repeater says "ready", Key your radio and make a test transmission, when you unkey it will be play back.
Who paid for a new roof, we did, your dues do,

A BIT OF HISTORY
The PARC 06 repeater was originally installed on Mt Kinport in 1976, in a building
that was bulldozed about 20 years ago, we were ask to move into a building that was
at that time owned by the cable TV company.
how many repeaters do you think were in Idaho in 1977 ?
Pocatello must have missed the cut off date for publication of this book.
