    The 145.330 system consists of a Vertex VXR-5000 repeater interfaced to a Link Communications RLC-3 repeater controller.  The 224.400 system is a Maggiore HiPro 'E' repeater connected to the same controller.  The 442.950 system is a Vertex VXR-5000 repeater connected to the same controller.  Simultaneous transmit and receive for these repeaters is accomplished by use of TxRx duplexers.

    An Autopatch is available on all 3 repeaters.  CTCSS 131.8 may be required to access the 145.33 and 442.95 repeaters, and CTCSS should be off when using the 224.400 repeater.
