New Repeater In Surrey

The Surrey Amateur Radio Club have installed, tested and their new 220 repeater is up and running.  The frequency is 223.960 (-1.6 MHz).  The repeater is tone enabled so make sure you set the tone in your radio to 110.9.  I’m sure they would like to hear from you so they can get an idea of the footprint of the system.  For future reference the repeater is also listed on our South Fraser Repeater Page.
