ICARC's W7AVM Repeater System consists of two linked repeaters on the 2 meter band.
The north repeater is located on the west side of Coupeville with the output on 146.86 MHz, Tone 127.3
The south repeater is located south of S.R. 525 on Cultus Bay Road. It 's output frequency is 147.22 MHz, Tone 127.3
The repeaters are RF linked providing coverage from northern Whidbey Island to the southern end of the island and surrounding areas. Check coverage maps here.
NOTE: Both repeaters now have a “Courtesy Beep” that indicated that the transmitting station has un-keyed. A single "beep" indicates the caller is on the same repeater. A double "beep" indicates the call is through the Link. Users should not begin transmitting until they are sure the repeater has stopped transmitting before keying up. Failure to wait will cause the repeater to “Time Out” or shut down to protect the equipment.
REMEMBER – LISTEN FOR THE REPEATER TO STOP TRANSMITTING BEFORE KEYING UP!
