Here is Information on our local Repeaters
-----------------------------------------------------------

VE7NIR
Both the VHF & UHF repeaters are located on the top of Mt Washington so they have excellent coverage.
At one time they could be cross-connected using DTMF commands, but this feature is gone now.
The UHF is part of the Island Trunk; the VHF has an open Autopatch.

443.700 (+shift, pl tone 141.3) note: the Island Trunk is always on.

146.62 (- shift, pl tone 141.3) autopatch control codes: 1* up, # down.
           It’s a MagicJack, so free calling in Canada and the U.S.

IRLP node Number 1985
Echolink node Number 580553

  To test a DTMF pad, send “D” and a few numbers.
  To record a mailbox message, send “B” star.
  To check the mailbox, send “B”.

  To review a message, send “B” and the message number… for example, if when you pressed "B"
  you heard three or four message headers, and now you want to listen to the whole message-3,
  then send“B3”.
  You can delete a message you’ve just heard, by sending “B” star star.
