Submitted by admin on Fri, 2024/01/05 - 09:00

The solar-powered Mount Carleton Park repeater (VE9MCP 147.120+) is now linked into the IRG system grouped with the North-West Zone.  Any reports of operation are appreciated, as there were issues with audio which now seem to be resolved.

As of Friday, November 24, the solar-powered Mount Carleton repeater  was fully CTCSS enabled - users will need to use a PL tone of 151.4 Hz to transmit via the repeater.  For a full list of updated repeaters, visit the IRG revamp page.

Update Note:  The repeater has intermittent audio loss out to other repeaters, users on other repeaters may sometimes hear only carrier and no audio from users on VE9GMI. The Campobello Island (VE9GMI 146.955 -) is now linked with the South West Zone.  The repeater had been stand-alone after being moved from Grand Manan Island, following a decommissioning of that site. Also note the revamp page has updated information, it previously listed the offset as a “+”  it should have read “-“ (minus).
