146.850 146.250 -600kHz FM VE6RYC 110.9 ENC/DEC Calgary. The club's primary repeater. NO AUTOPATCH available!
Located on Nose Hill Park in the north centre of town. Has excellent long range coverage, covering as far west as the Banff Park gates, east to Strathmore, south to Nanton, north past Airdre. It doesn't do so well to the north and northwest due to shadowing by Nose Hill.
It has a 110.9 Hz tone on both the input and output. You need this tone to access the repeater.
147.060 146.460 -600kHz FM VE6AUY 110.9 ENC Wildcat Hills, 30 km west of Calgary on Highway 1. Good coverage on Highway 1 from Calgary west into the mountains. (Note: Auto offset will give this frequency a "+".) Operational.

Many public events take place along Hwy 40, and this repeater is used by CARA to provide the control and safety communications. Other than that, it isn't used a lot. We hope to link it in to VE6RYC in Calgary to make it more useful in case of emergencies. The repeater is on top of the mountain at the Fortress ski resort.
