operates from a nominal 12 volt (13.6)
battery, 250 amp hours maintained by a 25 amp regulated charger. This
battery is shared with the 441.175
repeater. Receive current drain 340 ma Transmit
current drain 4.5 amps.
Repeater signs W6WGZ/R every eight
minutes and two minutes after the last transmission
of a QSO. It waits until the end of a transmission
before identifying unless the transmission lasts
longer than two minutes. If the repeater is in TONE
MODE a short tone
burst follows call
TIME OUT: The
timer allows five minutes
followed by a
group of two tones, then a group of one, two, three or four tones. This
whole sequence is repeated several times.
