The 146.415 is in West Orange w/ a PL tone of 85.4. This repeater has a 1 megahertz split. Is this the one? The call I have in my 2010/2011 ARRL repeater directory is wa2jsb. West Orange Repeater Association - WORA is the sponsor.
As far as the band plan is concerned, the local repeater coordinators will use a 'simplex'. This is usually a hold over from the 70's as the 10-70 club does have a 1 meg split and that club has been around a long time.
I think that's the one.
Isn't the "10-70" club the one with the repeater on 146.10/70? The one you are thinking of is the "49-49" repeater with output on 146.49, input on 147.49, or is it 145.49?
Interestingly, I just turned on my radio to check out the 49/49 machine to find which split it uses, and the radio comes up to 146.52 and I hear a couple guys talking about coordinated and uncoordinated repeaters...
I haven't been very active on any band, so I feel kind of lost when I do get on. I remember having been on some weird frequencies working FM simplex. All legal of course, but before the Metroplex repeater came along on 145.45, I used to use that freq for simplex sometimes.
With 146.52 being the "national simplex calling frequency", it makes sense that it would be used mainly to make contact with another station, then you go to another simplex freq to hold your QSO. But more often than not, I hear QSO's going on 146.52. Then again, the band hasn't been all that busy for the past 10+ years, so it's less of an issue than it used to be.
Edit: Just found an excellent source for repeater directory: http://www.artscipub.com/repeaters/
So much easier to use than the old ARRL directory I had.
