Our club repeater is open to any licensed amateur radio operator holding a Technician class or higher license in the United States. There is a three minute timer per transmission and a 500 millisecond squelch tail at the end of each transmission. If you hear the tail, then you can access the repeater. Do make sure that you wait until the squelch tail completes its cycle before transmitting, otherwise you will not make the repeater. Thanks for your understanding!
