    I am considering other receive sites. I am trying to make it easy to use HT's with the 145.29 repeater.

  • Inexpensive digital SDR experiments - links to some helpful pages on SDR, a pdf page.
  • The ORRC coordinates Oregon's Repeaters - the ORRC website.
  • Fix your Yaesu WIRES problem without making permanent changes. Most non-fusion Yaesu radios will transmit tones that cut you out of repeaters for a few seconds. This can fix the problem. This chart with permission from listed site.
