Your Assistance is Needed

posted Jul 22, 2012, 1:22 PM by
We are starting to go through the database to weed out "paper repeaters", and correct any data that needs correction.  

If you are aware of any "paper repeaters", ie, repeaters that are showing in the coordination database but are not on the air and/or were never built, please contact us and let us know.  We will go through the steps of attempting to contact the trustee on file and can possibly eliminate a good portion of these from the database.  That is only right, especially in the 2 Meter band, as those frequencies are few and far between to tie up as a coordination, yet nothing is on a given frequency.

Additionally, if there were changes in your coordinated facility (for example, I recently found that one trustee retired over 3 years ago and gave all his repeaters away to other organizations!), and you submitted changes to UNYREPCO in the past - but received no response - I encourage you to reach out to us to get this corrected.  As one of our repeater trustees recently commented to us:

"I am very pleased with the high level of communication since you took over as president of UNYREPCO.

This type of administration, yours,  is what it takes for the radio community at large to have faith in the coordination process and to be willing to go through the process knowing that an answer - YES OR NO will be forthcoming.

 Again, Thank You and good work."

This is the level we are striving for in UNYREPCO.  If you have had issues in the past, we will try our best to make sure you don't have issues in the future.  

We have worked hard to gain the confidence of our neighboring councils - this goes a long way in getting repeaters cross coordinated properly and makes it very easy to work out any difficulties between neighbors.  This makes the coordination process that much easier than before.

We appreciate your support and assistance.


Tom Ray, W2TRR

President, UNYREPCO
