Does anyone know the freq/Pl of the repeater that is practically on location at Disney in Orlando?
Thanks in advance!

A quick google search turned up this.  I can't vouch for its accuracy:

http://www.mouseplanet.com/al/docs/scan.htm

Amateur Radio at Disneyland / D.E.A.R.S.

This lists the output for the two meter repeater run by the Disney Amateur Radio group. If you're actually going to use it, you need this information. My ARRL guide lists the following:

Disneyland - 146.940- WA6BIZ o(ca)131.8 DsnyIndRC

Translation:

Repeater output is 146.940
Repeater input is 146.340 (-600kHz)

The callsign is WA6BIZ, which is incorrect according to the auto ID on the repeater, but I don't remember the new callsign. The repeater is (o)pen for use, but the auto-patch is closed. Auto-patch allows privileged users to make phone calls. The repeater requires a 131.8Hz CTCSS tone.

The Disney ham radio group is formally known as the DISNEY EMERGENCY AMATEUR RADIO SERVICE, or D.E.A.R.S.  This group has, in past years, staged a special event operating station for the ham radio community (usually around major park anniversary dates).

It would be so great if Disney would promote amateur radio by somehow featuring it in an attraction or on one of the TV shows or movies.  Can you imagine the stampede if Hannah Montana, Lizzie McGuire, Raven, Zack, and Cody became hams?

Please disregard my previous post.  It appears that those frequencies are for Disneyland, not Disney World.

Perhaps this link will be more useful:  http://www.radioreference.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-42661.html

Unless it has been changed try 147.300 and there is also one on 440.  I used the two meter repeater on my last visit there a year or so ago.  Rumor is it is located in the Cinderella's (sp?) Castle - not sure about that.

hi,

one of the Drake & Josh episodes featured sister
Megan using her radio station.  I don't remember
the callsign she used.

147.300, +600 offset, 103.5 tone. Call sign is WD4WDW. I believe if you contact a member of the club you can get a special QSL card...but don't quote me on that!

   So that's why SSB sounds like Donald Duck!

K4JC is correct.

147.3+ with a CTCSS tone of 103.5

The repeater is not in the castle. It's on a nice 300 ft tower about 500 feet from where I work in an area called the Admin Area. That is east-south-east of Magic Kingdom about 3 miles.

There are also many other repeaters in the Orlando area. The busiest repeater with lots of nice folks to chat with is the KT4AZ repeater on 147.120 + 103.5

There's a nice Echolink and IRLP repeater on 442.100.

Nearly all repeaters in Central Florida are toned with 103.5

Have fun!

=====================

    Don't hold your breath getting a Mickey Mouse QSL card.  Several years ago, I worked one of the California  D.E.A.R.S. special event stations.  I've sent a total of 4 SASE's, with the QSO info and their Contact reference number.  Not a reply to ANY of them; not even a return of the SASE.  Somebody probably cut out the stamps for their own use.  GREAT PUBLIC RELATIONS, DizzyCorp!  
    If an organization sponsors and advertises a special event (especially if the sponsoring organization is a "for profit" business) they should have the courtesy to send QSL cards they promise.  (And a corp. as big as Dizzy shouldn't even require a SASE.)
