How to talk on the 147.435 Southern California repeater

  • Output:  147.435 MHz
  • Input:  146.400 MHz    (103.5 PL)

  • Node 747565 K6MWT-R   (Offline as of 4/2/2017)
  • 435 was banned by Echolink on April 2, 2017 due to violation of #6 of their loosely defined guidelines.  It seems the gutter parlance language that the FCC now allows on the Amateur Radio service is not acceptable to Echolink.  They are a private service and can ban anyone for any reason.
