Ten metre repeaters are located world-wide and, when the band is open, you can work the world through them. I once chatted to a chap who was only five miles away from me – through a repeater located in Boston, USA. Great fun!
We now have a 10 metre repeater located in Worthing, West Sussex. GB3CQ 29.630 with CTCSS 88.5Hz tone to access. More information here.
Some repeaters need a ctcss tone to access them and keep them open. Others need nothing more than a carrier. I hope to list tones and frequency shifts alongside each repeater callsign.
My list below is quite old so bear with me while I put together an up to date list. Some of the information might be well out of date!
|29.600||FM simplex calling|
|29.640||New York – Rockland||N2ACF|
|29.650||USA and Japan|
Update: 19/10/22: KQ2H New York repeater.
I’ve just worked AA2EC, Ellen, through this New York repeater. Great signals both ways. Ten metres has been open to the U.S. for the last couple of days. Over the next 3 years or so we should enjoy sunspot maximum.
