Has anyone setup their radio to use a repeater. There happens to be several 50MHz repeaters nearby my QTH.

Thanks, Caesar.

I haven't run across a radio made in the last 15 years that covers a VHF band that doesn't include some sort of auto-offset feature for repeaters. Now, if you want to get into a machine that has a reverse offset (i.e., listens "up" where most machines are listening "down"), you may need to program that yourself.

Repeater operation covered on page 92 of the manual.  Includes instructions on how to program tones, too.

Yes, there is Repeater operation in the User Guide, but it's for use on VHF/UHF only.

There is a local net on 50Mhz with tone. I can probably do the frequency offset using Split operation, but I've no idea how to send a tone (the option is greyed out when in 50MHz).

But 50MHz is VHF...   Huh

I have a Kenwood TS2000 and a Yaesu FT-100D both of which can be programmed for repeater operation on 6M and 10M bands.  My HF only Alinco DX-SR8T can also be programmed for 10M repeater operation.  It seems improbable that Yaesu would leave out that capability on their new All-Band, All-Mode radio!

Sorry for the goose chase, it turns out the 50MHz repeaters are FM, and yes, FT-991 can be programmed as repeater mode when in FM mode.

Thank you, Caesar.
