Cincinnati/Dayton Region frequency list

Author: n8tfd/Steve - Published At: Fri 21 Feb., 2014 19:58 EST - (386 Reads)
By popular demand, I have posted a spreadsheet containing every known VHF/UHF repeater that serves the Cincinnati/Dayton Region of Red Cross: http://www.qcen.org/tiki-download_file.php?fileId=220

Updated this file on May 20 with updated callsigns/club names, removed 147.15+ (rumor is it's going DMR), switched 443.075+ in Hillsboro to DSTAR, and removed TSQL from 146.985- in Dayton area

Which, hopefully, looks and works somewhat like the old qcen.org. We're still finding "glitches" — if you see something that doesn't look right, please let us know!

November newsletter coming next week, and club meeting next Friday (Nov. 15) at 730pm at 2111 Dana Ave. / 45207.
