Repeater Offsets

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.
