The Mississauga Amateur Radio Club owns and operates two repeaters for the benefit of all amateurs in the Mississauga area.
The VHF Repeater at 145.430MHz (-600 kHz) and the UHF repeater operating on 444.575MHz (+5.0MHz) each have CTCSS tone squelch access using the standard Greater Toronto Area tone of 103.5Hz (1A), that is recommended by the Western New York and Southern Ontario Repeater Council (WNYSORC).
The VHF and UHF repeaters are controlled with a Link Comm RLC-3. The previously configured phone patch is now decommissioned. The VHF repeater supports both IRLP and Echolink links to the Internet. VE3MIS IRLP node number is 2998 and VE3MIS-R EchoLink node number is 404792.
Both VHF and UHF repeaters are configured with backup power provided by the building diesel generator. In the event of a power failure, emergency power will enable the repeaters to operate up to forty eight hours before generator refueling is required.
The 6 metre repeater, located at the Club Station, operates at 53.250MHz (-1.0MHz), no tone. This repeater is not configured with backup power.
