Operating Guidelines
Key your transmitter for one to two seconds before speaking to allow all repeaters to “come alive”. Failure to pause before speaking will chop off the beginning of your transmission on the linked repeaters.
When checking into nets on this system do not momentarily drop your carrier to check for doubling. This drops out all of the links. When you key back up all of the repeaters must “come alive” again before you will be heard. Let the net controller deal with doubling.
Follow the net controller’s instructions when checking into nets. Not all nets are alike. Correct procedure for one net might not be the correct procedure for another.
Pause between transmissions to allow a station with emergency traffic to break in.
Say the word “BREAK” three times if you need to interrupt a conversation or net to pass emergency traffic.
Have fun.
