Quick Reference

The W8GQN, N8DNX, and KO8P repeaters share a common controller, remote base, weather radio, and IRLP node. Most of the commands below are available from any of those machines. With the exception of pre-set "ancillary functions", most Remote Base operations are, for the most part, limited to the UHF repeaters due to limitations imposed by FCC Part 97 rules. There are also a few differences in the way each of these repeaters behave and a few of the commands are not available on specific repeaters.
