VOICE REPEATER ACCESS AND USAGE

All the voice repeaters in Kent can be accessed by CTCSS tones of 103.5 Hz followed by at least 3 seconds of audio this can be achieved by giving your own call sign twice to ensure the repeater is opened properly. ALWAYS wait for the over signal, usually a ‘K’ or a ‘G’ between overs before transmitting. The ‘G’ indicates access by CTCSS.
