Does anyone have a current list of the best 10-meter FM repeaters for hams in the U.S. Canada, and Mexico? I am interested in repeaters that are:

- Open to all licensed amateurs

- Heavily used

- Easy to get into and easy to hear using a simple 10m FM mobile setup

- Recently heard on 10m

Thanks in advance.

Your post got me to thinking so, I looked at 10M repeaters in SC and neighboring states:

SC - 0 of repeaters 182 repeaters
NC - 2 of 528 repeaters
GA - 0 of 330 repeaters
FL - 2 of 923 repeaters

So, in these four states, four 10M repeaters of 1963 total repeaters

With this few samples, how do you pick the best?

with only 8 repeater pairs listed for the US in the 2010 ARRL repeater directory, it would not be tough to monitor ALL of them for activity. And only about 120 total listed for US, Canada, all using the same 8 pairs it would not be hard to find the most active!!!

There are no 10 meter repeaters open to all licenses amateurs. Technician class licenses cannot operate in the repeater subband on 10 meters.

You need to think of the phrase "all licensed amateurs" as meaning "all appropriately licensed amateurs" and it all makes sense.

In the last cycle (1996 - 2001 or so) I had a Realistic 10M radio in the van. The antenna was a RS "Tree Buster" (66" bottom loaded whip) mounted on the roof ran of the van. I used to eat lunch in the van and work a lot of DX SSB and FM.

I used to hear the W5DFW 10M repeater in Tampa almost every day a few years ago.  Nice machine.  "From the Republic of Texas, you're listening to the W5DFW repeater - Dallas, Ft Worth"

I know my friend Dan has a newer 10 meter repeater that works very well.  It's located ontop of a 4400 ft. Mountain in Sparta, NC.  It's 29.640/29.540, No PL tone required.  The callsign of it is WA4PXV.  It's putting out about 80-watts and hears really well !!  I know this repeater has been very active lately.  The receiver is preamped, so it hears better than it can talk, and the receive site has an extremely low noise figure. 

Definitly give that one a shot.  It's co-located with a 6 meter repeater on 53.750/52.750 (no PL tone), callsign WA4PXV.

The site is located about 60 miles NW of Winston-Salem and has over a 100 mile mobile coverage radius.  It's the widest coverage 10-m repeater in NC and maybe the highest one in elevation on the eastcoast.

my HF rig only supports one PL tone via a dip switch under the rig... ( dam you kenwood ).....
what would be the best PL tone to set it to for me out here in California...
I'm guessing for mid west or Texas PL tones... that's what i hear on 10 meters the best....
any thoughts Huh

For TX: 123.0 Hz for K5SOH, Rosehill, 29.680 or 192.8 Hz for W5DFW, Fort Worth, 29.660
More in midwest w/ no tone req'd:
WY: KJ7AZ, Rawlins, 29.640; KC7NP, Cody, 29.680
UT: KD7BA   , Salt Lake City, 29.660
NE: WBØQQK, Bellevue, 29.640; WBØIEN, Hooper, 29.660
CO: WØTX, Denver, 29.620; KXØE, Colorado Springs, 29.680

There appear to be no 10m machines in NM, OK or KS, but there's about 60 others in North America w/ no tone, so that may be your best bet, short of a newer 10m radio.

10m FM is pretty active on simplex. Don't discount what you can do there. I hear some great stations out of TX and the Rockies on 10 FM at times. As far as repeaters, hard to say what is the most active. During openings the ones around NYC are pretty busy. Other than that, it's hit or miss.

Good luck!

This brings up a question. My TS-940 does not have PL tones. Is there an add on that I can use?

The KE7LKO 29.680 repeater in Elko NV has been working very well lately to the Southeast .  It requires a PL tone of 100.0 hz, and is linked up in NV on 440 & 900 MHz.

Currently I have a repeater being built, and should be on the air in a couple months on 29.660/29.560 from southcentral North Carolina.  PL access will be 107.2 hz and linked in with my 6m and 440 repeaters.  I'll keep you guys posted.
