NOTICE: The 145.390 and 147.060 repeaters have changed the CTCSS tone to 88.5 hz. UHF repeater tones both remain 100.0 hz. If you are unable to key the repeater or not hearing it but seeing it as busy, you will need to change the tone frequency to 88.5 hz for the 2 meter repeaters. 145.390 is suffering from some noise issues. Switching to 443.200 is an option if someone says they are not hearing you well.
Weekly Emergency Net meets every Monday at 9 PM local time on the club repeaters. Check-ins taken on 145.390 (88.5) and 443.200 (100.0). If there are issues with the repeaters, the alternate repeater is 147.060 with a 88.5 tone.
