Due to the changes at VK5RSB with the requirement for the input CTCSS tone of 91.5Hz, the IRLP Node 6214 has now been transferred to the VK5RAD 70cm frequency, 439.925 MHz.
As AREG are the sponsors for both the 70cm repeaters, VK5RSB 439.900 and VK5RAD 439.925, AREG were planning changes with the IRLP node with the intention to transfer it to 439.925 in the future. However due to interference problems with VK5RSB necessitating implementing CTCSS on the repeater’s receiver, the transfer of the IRLP node 6214 has been brought forward.
AREG trusts that the transfer of the IRLP node 6214 is of value to the amateur community and that the system is available to all, including those who do not have the CTCSS capability in their radio equipment.
