Hello. I'm a new ham and can't figure out what these plus/negative/up/down items mean.
example frequency:145.325+, or 145.325-, or 440.500 up.600, or 440.500 up, or 440.500 down?
I'm sure the answer is staring me in the face, but some help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Those plus and minuses are refering to the repeater offsets.

The numeric frequency given is the repeater's output (the freq YOU listen on).  So, 145.325+ means you listen on 145.325 and transmit UP.  In the US, the standard offset is 600kHz on 2meters, so your TX freq would be 145.925.  It works the same way on 440, but the standard offset is 5MHz.
