REPEATER BACKUP SIMPLEX FREQUENCY (in the event the repeater is off-air)
146.985 Mhz Simplex (NO PL TONE). When programming, you may have to manually set repeater offset to 0.000 Mhz). It is suggested that you program a “memory channel” for 146.985 simplex, NO PL Tone, 0.000 Mhz offset (may have to change the auto repeater offset to 0.000 Mhz).
I was just informed that the power must be out at the repeater site.
The protocol, during an outage is to use 146.985 simplex with NO pl tone. NOT REVERSE
When using announce that you are “985 simplex”
Hopefully the power will be restored soon.
