FWRC repeaters

The Fort Wayne Radio Club operates the repeaters listed below. All are open to the ham public. Please see the club's continuous tone-coded squelch system (CTCSS) policy below the table.

Frequency (MHz)/Offset 141.3 Hz CTCSS Location Notes
146.76 - Optional on input, transmitted on output Northern Fort Wayne (Clinton St. near I-469) Alternate repeater for SKYWARN net. 200 ft.
146.94 - Required on input for FM (analog) voice, transmitted on output New Haven (Parrot Rd., 0.7 mile east of Maplecrest Rd.) Yaesu System Fusion repeater, supports both FM (analog) and C4FM (digital) voice. To avoid hearing the C4FM data stream on an FM radio, enable 141.3 Hz CTCSS decoding. Primary operational frequency (on FM) for Allen County, Ind. ARES. Approximately 300 ft.
146.91 - Optional on input, transmitted on output Northeast Fort Wayne (IPFW campus) Echolink node 519521. 165 ft.
442.99375 + N/A New Haven (Parrot Rd., 0.7 mile east of Maplecrest Rd.) D-STAR. Approximately 300 ft. Read more about the D-STAR repeater.
444.875 + Required on input, transmitted on output Northern Fort Wayne (Clinton St. near I-469) 186 ft.

 

FWRC CTCSS Policy

  1. All FWRC repeaters (with the exception of D-STAR) will have a (141.3 Hz) tone on their outputs. (This applies to the 146.940 machine when operating in the analog-FM mode).
  2. The 146.940 machine (when operating in the analog-FM mode) and the 444.875 machine, will always require an input tone (141.3 HZ) in order to access them.
  3. The 146.760 and 146.910 machines will not normally require a tone on their inputs to access them. However, if conditions exist such that either machine is being tripped due to unusual propagation, or other causes, it will be possible for the club to implement a (141.3 Hz) input tone requirement, on a temporary basis, in order to allow user access to these two machines.
  4. The D-STAR machine (442.99375 MHz) has no requirement for a tone on its input.
