You are invited to join us in the best weekly rag chew in the area:
      The 985 Round Table… Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.
   on the W3GMS repeater  —
The repeater website is www.w3gmsrepeater.com
New to the roundtable?  Checking-in late?  Can’t stay very long?
That’s fine; check-in anyway!  You are always welcome…
and the roundtable often lasts until about 10:00.
–  –  –
To avoid the first syllable of your transmission being cut off, wait one second before talking.  Click, Wait, Talk.
Willing to serve as a roundtable host from time to time?  Feel free to contact Jim, AF3Z – jagoudie@comcast.net, or Phil, KC3CIB – kc3cib@gmail.com for helpful information and to discuss scheduling
Don’t let yourself be cut off!  There is a 3-minute timer on the repeater and it will cut you off if you talk too long.  Never fear.  You can reset it very easily; simply let up on press-to-talk button for a moment.  There’s no need to wait for the repeater carrier drop.

REPEATER POWER OUTAGE PROTOCALL


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.
