Repeaters, Beacons, Nodes & APRS

PLEASE NOTE: As a general rule regarding FM repeaters,  VHF repeaters (144 MHz  – 148 MHz) use a 600 kHz offset either plus (+) or minus (-). UHF repeaters (440 MHz  – 448 MHz) use a 5 MHz offset either plus (+) or minus (-).

The frequency shown for the following repeaters is the transmit frequency of the repeater. Set your radio to receive this frequency and, with modern transceivers, the offset should be set for you automatically.

Beacon Information

Eastern Newfoundland (GN37) is the closest point of North America to Europe. It is therefore a strategic location for radio propagation beacons.

VO1ZA

The 6 metre beacon (VO1ZA) operates on the campus of Memorial University and was designed and installed by members of the MUN ARC in June of 1990. It operates on a frequency of 50.0400 MHz (space) 50.0395 MHz (mark) FSK CW with 1.5 watts output to a 0.27 wave gamma fed vertical (omni).

144 Beacon – Morse Code

A 2 metre high power CW transatlantic beacon is operating on 144.400 MHz,+-1.2 kHz. Anyone wishing to report a transatlantic reception for authentication should report the exact time, frequency and full text of the transmission to MRCN. The frequency of 144.400 MHz was chosen in consultation with the RSGB VHF committee.

144 Beacon – Voice

A 2 metre FM beacon transmitts audio Morse on 146.31 MHz. This beacon has been on the air since 14 September, 1986 and has been used to study seasonal viability in local VHF propagation. It also serves as a benchmark for repeater antenna receiving performance in the region.
