VK5RLZ 70cm Repeater

As of yesterday the 3 of July 2013 the VK5RLZ 70cm repeater now requires a 91.5Hz CTCSS tone for access it. There is no CTCSS tone on the output only the input, but this may change in the future.

VK5 Local Beacons

If your interested in testing the at accuracy of you your transceiver on 6/2/70/23/SHF there are beacons setup in around Mt Lofty (VK5VF) and the Elizabeth Water Tower (VK5RLZ) which you can listen to and they are on the following frequencies

VK5VF
6m = 53.3200 GPS locked
2m = 144.4500 Crystal locked
700mm = 432.4500 GPS locked

VK5RLZ
230mm = 1296.4520
SHF = 2403.4520
SHF = 3400.4520 proposed
SHF = 5760.4520 proposed
SHF = 10368.4520 proposed
SHF = 24048.4520 proposed

The GPS locked beacons accuracy will be in the order of 1000th of a hertz
