Club Repeaters

There are five repeaters in the greater Pittsburgh area. All of the repeaters use open carrier squelch and are available 24 hours a day. Emergency traffic does take priority in all cases.

147.09
The 147.09 MHz repeater is the flagship repeater. It is located at WPXI TV-11. The antenna is located 300 feet up their tower and is 1500 feet above sea level. The radio equipment is a Motorola Micor with a power output of 90 watts into the duplexer. The controller is S-Com's 7K. The repeater uses standard carrier operated squelch but does transmit an 88.5 Hz tone. Auto-patch is available to Club members only.

146.82
The new repeater is operating on 146.82MHz with the callsign W3EXW C. It shares the same site (WQED-TV in Oakland), the same antenna, the same feed line, and the same controller as W3EXW B on 444.35MHz. While it shares a lot with our UHF D-Star repeater, it is a separate repeater. Please visit the Repeater Committee's D-Star web site at http://dstar.nharc.org for more information.
