This is the old operating Procedures
and Policies for the N6SAP 147.435 Mhz amateur radio
Repeater under the ownership of Scott Press, the first
time.This was Scott's ham radio operating policies and
repeater rules at that time.What a ham!
One low pass filter cavity is flakey so we are currently
at -66db separation instead of the 80+ db we usually experience.
This will slightly lower the sensitivity of the receiver.
The filter cavities on the high pass side (transmit) are working
The jamming, quick-keying and complete lack of courtesy is out
of control. Therefore, until further notice, to ensure proper
operation and promote courtesy, the timeout timer of the repeater
is set to one minute. The beep gap is one second. This means
that it will take ONE FULL SECOND for the time out timer to
reset after you un-key. If you do not wait for a beep, the repeater
will time out.
Remote bases are conditionally welcomed. In order to operate
a remote base on the N6SAP repeater you must adhere to the following
rules that become effective October 21, 2002:
All remote bases must have an identifier. Your call sign must
be clearly heard from the remote base while it is transmitting.
I refer you to C.F.R. Title 47 §97.119. Station identification.
There are no exceptions. Purchase a Comspec ID-8 or a Piccon.
Your remote base must have a three minute time out timer.
You must be able to control or disable the transmitter if it
goes out of control. Purchase an X-10 phone controller and appliance
module. This way with a phone call you can turn it off.
Any exceptions will result in your remote base station being
expelled. If you continue to operate your remote base without
the aforementioned requirements, your privilege to operate on
the N6SAP repeater will be suspended indefinitely until such
a time that you can demonstrate that your remote base identifies
and is controllable. It must not interfere with the N6SAP repeater.
Here are instructions how NOT to time out the repeater.
Listen to see if the repeater is in use.
If so, wait for a beep and throw out your call sign or say "break".
If you are acknowledged, wait for the courtesy tone and take
your turn. If you are asked to standby, please wait until your
You will be offered one minute to pass your message.
If you need more time, please say "reset" and un-key.
After the courtesy tone continue your message.
N6SAP says please be courteous to your fellow hams. Please don't
jam, please don't play music and please identify.
