TEN COMMANDMENTS OF
REPEATER OPERATING TECHNIQUES

1. FIND a repeater using a repeater directory. Avoid “Kerchunking

2. LISTEN. Familiarize yourself with its operating procedures

3. TRANSMIT “(your call-sign) Monitoring” is all that needed to attract someone’s attention. Don’t call CQ on repeaters.

4. To JOIN a conversation in progress, transmit your call-sign between transmissions. Don’t use “break” unless it’s an emergency.

5. BE COURTEOUS. Acknowledge all stations wishing to use the repeater. Invite him or her to join in or make a short call to another station that may be monitoring the frequency.

6. PAUSE between transmissions to allow others to join in. Wait for the courtesy “Beep”.

7. BREVITY. Keep transmissions short. This permits more people to use the repeater.

8. Always IDENTIFY at end of each series of transmissions or every 10 minutes. You don not need to transmit any other stations call-sign. Just yours.

9. Use SIMPLEX whenever possible. Adhere to the band plan.

10. SUPPORT your local repeater groups.
