Frequency 444.725 + mhz.  It can be worked with a low power UHF handheld from anywhere in the city. This UHF repeater has IRLP access available if a 100Hz CTCSS tone is added to your transmit signal. The standard four digit address codes and 73 disconnect code can be used to activate IRLP.  See www.irlp.net for further information.  Equipment is being readied to enable linking to the VHF system using DTMF commands. Default status will be unlinked.  More info here when it is ready to go.
