With many thanks to Ray VE6RHS NARC Operations Director and Randy VA6RC & Dave VA6TK NARC's Intrepid Repeater Team, NARC is pleased to announce a new VHF repeater location near Chapman, Alberta. Thanks also go to Curtis VE6AEW and Kiernan VA6IP for scoping out the site. VE6TNC will be our new "Elk Island" repeater and will be going on-air in the coming weeks (sometime around April-May).
The map to the right shows the expected mobile and handheld coverage for the new repeater. Yellow is mobile coverage at 25W and green is handheld coverage at 5W. Please click on the image for a full-sized view.
VE6TNC will be on 146.610 (-) with 100Hz CTCSS
NARC Repeater Coverage
With the addition of the new Elk Island repeater, VE6TNC, this brings a total of five linked repeaters to the NARC repeater system. Providing remarkable coverage around the Edmonton region, these repeaters are VE6PLP about 70 klms to the SSW of Edmonton, VE6JN about 15 klms to the west, VE6HM at aproximately 15 klms to the east and VE6UV just a kilometre or two to the south of downtown Edmonton. The NARC repeater system also has an on-demand link to the SARA system, extending coverage to a large portion of Alberta when needed.
The map to the left shows the NARC repeater mobile and handheld coverage from south of Red Deer, west of Seba Beach, north of Newbrook and east of Innisfree. Yellow is mobile coverage at 25W and green is handheld coverage at 5W. Please click on the image for a full-sized view.
