Notices of offline repeaters

FASMA personnel from time to time will review our listings of coordinated repeaters.  This is done from within the service area at a close location to the repeater using an HT or mobile radio, which guarantees the repeater should be able to be keyed up and tested.  FASMA will ID, we don’t just kerchunk repeaters either.  If we find one to be offline during testing, we will follow up with a notice similar to the below example.

As we have models based on the coordination now, we can be sure we’re testing from the coordinated service area.  This prevents holding a coordination for a repeater on a 200 meter tower but where the trustee has it really operating from his garage as they have lost the site.  We also test that it can be used per the coordinated PL or access tone, to verify it’s not just a beacon.

If you receive one of these notices, please update us via email, and submit a new coordination form.  If the system is offline for maintenance, simply let us know when it’s back online.  We don’t want to de-coordinate anyone without cause, but it’s good amateur practice to relinquish a coordination if you’re offline with no plans to go back in operation.

Example notice:
 Dear Bryan Fields, W9CR,
 
 Your repeater, Record: 1496, Callsign: W9CR, on 224.0600 has been identified as
 being off air during an audit of coordinated repeaters in the area.  The
 repeater was checked from an HT a 5w at approximately 30m of height within your
 repeater's service area.  Your listed CTCSS of: 146.2 was tried for the repeater
 in addition to the standard PL tones for the area.
 
 Please respond to this email with an update on this or let us know if your
 repeater is permanently off the air.  Under FASMA policy a repeater
 coordination may be revoked if the repeater is offline without explanation for
 60 days or more.  It is incumbent on the trustee to let FASMA know about any
 operational changes to the repeater as well.
 
 If any of the operational paramaters have changed, please submit an updated
 coordination form.  The PDF form and information may be found on our website
 here: https://fasma.org/coordination/

New Coordination Form and Site Updates

FASMA has updated it’s coordination form in an effort to reduce errors in coordination applications.  A new detailed reference page has been created to walk a trustee through the process of filling out the application.

 

The website has been updated, along with the Itinerant Repeater Policy moving from a proposed standard to a working standard.

 

Lastly we’ve updated our Library with links to the FASMA policies/theory/band-plan and a wealth of other coordination knowledge.

 

As always we welcome feedback to rt@fasma.org.
