N6USO REPEATER NOW LINKED TO THE K6TEM 440

The 145.440 repeater is also linked in full time with the K6TEM 445.48 - 131.8 tone repeater high above Arcadia. This repeater configuration will give full coverage from Los Angeles, Santa Monica, through the South Bay to the Inland Empire. 449.88 - 146.2 Is located on Sunset Ridge.
I hope you enjoy the new changes and work that has been done to the system. *******************

Repeater Encodes Tone

We have enabled tone encoding on the N6USO repeater to transmit tone only on a valid signal. So if you enable CTCSS decode on your radio it will remain quiet unless it hears the 136.5 tone that is now encoded on the repeater output.
We have had reports of some having difficulty using this feature. On some radios, Kenwood, for example have the capability to use split-tones. Please ensure that you set both your tone encode and decode to 136.5. With this enabled, you will only hear the audio from the Sunset Ridge Repeater.
We hope this will enhance your enjoyment of the repeater and enable better communications. As always, please send email if you have any questions or concerns.
