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.
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.
