Guidelines covering the conduct and use of the CNYARA Radio Club’s Repeaters

  1. The repeaters will be primarily used for local traffic and are open for all amateur radio operators.
  2. Control stations will not discourage anyone from using the repeaters.
  3. Conduct on the repeaters should be governed by common sense and courtesy. Please don’t give a bad impression of our service by making thoughtless or off-color remarks. Instead, set an example which others will be proud to follow.
  4. The repeater trustee will have final say on any repeater operation, since they are the final authority as per the FCC.
  5. Use of the word ‘Break’ should be reserved for Emergency and High Priority needs. In the event of hearing ‘Break’ called, all stations on the frequency should immediately cease operation, and assist the breaking station as required. Stations may resume normal operation only after the emergency has been handled.
  6. Time control or net traffic will be given priority.
  7. All stations will leave a short pause between transmissions for the purpose of allowing other stations to call on the repeater.
  8. Calling stations will keep their calls short, such as a one or two line monologue and then stand by until the frequency is clear.
  9. Base stations should stand aside for mobile stations.
  10. Special Event communications have priority over normal repeater usage, and any special event for which the repeaters are to be used shall be cleared through the repeater trustee.
  11. Emergency communications will have priority usage and complete control of the repeaters for as long as the emergency exists. A net control station will call up and direct the net.
  12. If you hear stations jamming or interfering with repeater communications, do not make any comment. If you can override the interference, continue with your conversation. If you can’t continue, sign off the repeater in a normal manner.
  13. Identify your station every ten minutes during your QSO and at sign off, as per FCC regulations. While not mandatory per the FCC, for ease of operation and courtesy to others on the repeater please ID when coming on the air.
  14. Repeater rules and regulations can be changed by the repeater trustee and the repeater committee. Users will be notified of changes.

LOYAL...offers loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs, and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.

PROGRESSIVE...with knowledge abreast of science, a well-built and efficient station and operation above reproach.

FRIENDLY...slow and patient operating when requested; friendly advice and counsel to the beginner; kindly assistance, cooperation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.

BALANCED...radio is an avocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school or community.

PATRIOTIC...station and skill always ready for service to country and community.
