K-Link Tips and Tricks
Occasionally when somebody is programming repeater frequencies into a radio, they will ask what the offset is. Luckily, in Kansas we have a standardized band plan for 2 meters and 70 centimeters. So:
- Repeaters with outputs below 147.000 MHz are negative (-) 600 kHz offset.
- Repeaters with outputs at and above 147.000 MHz are positive (+) 600 kHz offset.
- All 70 centimeter repeaters (in Kansas) have a positive (+) 5 MHz offset. Kansas does not coordinate “upside-down” repeater channels.
