10 METER FM BANDPLAN AND SPLIT FREQUENCY GUIDE FOR 10 METER FM REPEATERS


The National 10 Meter FM Simplex Frequency:

29.600 MHz.

REPEATER OUTPUT FREQUENCIES:

29.620 MHz. 29.640 MHz. 29.660 MHz. 29.680 MHz.

10 METER FM REPEATER OUTPUT FREQUENCIES ARE FROM 29.610 MHz. THROUGH 29.690 MHz.

It is helpfull to have an HF radio with dual VFO's or one that the "split" can be programed into. An example of working a typical 10 Meter FM Repeater "split" is as follows: Repeater Output Frequency= 29.680 MHz. Repeater Input Frequency= 29.580 MHz.

Be aware that some 10 Meter FM Repeaters may require a PL tone that needs to be inserted to bring them up just like many 2-meter and 440 Repeaters. Listen for band openings and good luck on working the DX !

In the Spokane, WA area, there is a 2-meter and 70 cm link to 10 Meter FM: 145.110 MHz. link to 10 Meter FM on 29.600 MHz. 448.700 MHz. link to 10 Meter FM on 29.600 MHz.

"THE KBARA SYSTEM" (THE KAMIAK BUTTE AMATEUR REPEATER ASSOCIATION)






The KBARA system consists of several amateur radio repeaters that are linked together to cover an area from southeastern British Columbia to northeastern Oregon, and from western Montana to central Washington. The KBARA system can also be connected to the Evergreen Intertie, an interconnected group of repeaters located in the northwestern United States and western Canada.

The primary purpose of the KBARA system is to function as a linked system that provides communications to and within the above area. It makes possible a single system of mobile communications coverage extending beyond the limited range provided by any single repeater operation.

FM repeaters operating in the VHF and UHF bands are linked by full duplex UHF radios. The repeaters' frequencies and locations are as follows:

147.380 MHz. W7OE, Mica Peak, east of Spokane, WA

147.360 MHz. KB7WTO, Stensgar (Stranger) Mountain, north of Spokane, WA

147.280 MHz. AA7P, Pikes Peak, southeast of Walla Walla, WA

147.020 MHz. N7LVO, Lookout Pass, on the Idaho-Montana border.

146.740 MHz. KB7ARA, Kamiak Butte, near Colfax and Pullman, WA

145.010 MHz. WB7AUK, Packet Node & BBS, Mica Peak, east of Spokane, WA

223.900 MHz. WA7YCP, Stensgar (Stranger) Mountain, north of Spokane, WA

All licensed amateur radio operators are welcome to use this open repeater system. Your support would also be greatly appreciated. To support KBARA send your contributions to: KBARA P.O. Box 18575 Spokane, WA 99228-8575

Support is $15.00 per year for individuals and $20.00 for family sponsorship. (All must be living at the same address.) Dues are January of each year. Dues paid during the last quarter (after September 1) will apply through the entire following year.

FM Satellites listed above can be monitored and worked with as little as a dualband handheld and a rubber duck antenna. Mobile satellite communication is even possible. The tricky part of working satellites is knowing when a given satellite is in range of your QTH. There are many tracking programs around. From MS-Dos,Windows,Linux, Windows CE (Pocket PC) and Palm formats. Some can update tracking elements right from the Internet.

Please see the following web page for links to satellite tracking and satellite resources:




Amsat - The Radiuo Amateur Satellite Corporation is a great resource for all amateur satellites including keplerian elements used to track satellites.



The Arrow Antenna is a great light weight dualband satellite antenna.
