    I'm terribly sorry you live in an area where you have to be so
    paranoid about letting the amateur community use your repeaters. I'd
    move if I lived there.....

    Every repeater I know of in South Carolina is an open repeater,
    privately owned or club repeaters. This is the spirit of amateur
    radio, not some little clique of the "elite" with some secret code to
    get the repeater to work for fear of someone saying "shit" on it,
    which, when it happens here, doesn't cause the sky to fall.

    Any member of our club who wants to play has the extensive control
    codes for the club's repeaters and links. We took the autopatch down
    when noone was using it to save the club telephone bill money we
    wanted to spend on more important things....like parties and steaks!
    Most everyone has cellphones, now, making it obsolete, anyways.

    One of my buds has a 147.300 repeater located 1,800' up the WCSC 2200'
    TV tower on a platform with split antennas. It's open, no tones, no
    funny business and anyone is welcome. A 50W mobile can use it nearly
    80 miles away in this flat territory. I can key it from the 55' VHF
    sailboat antenna cut for the marine band almost 70 miles at sea on the
    other side of the tower.

    I'm terribly sorry ham radio isn't as much fun for you as it always
    was for me. Sure, we've had some assholes, from time to time, but
    they usually give up and go away or are caught and fed to the
    alligators. Shit happens.

    I was down on my buddy's 41' Amel Sharpi cruising ketch until an hour
    ago. Had a great time from the marina talking to the guys on 40
    meters from the insulated backstay with the new Icom M802/AT140 HF rig
    I installed. Worked on completing the NMEA network for all our
    instruments, including the HF and VHF radios, today. The boat now has
    full GMDSS/DSC capabilities on all the marine bands.....way cool.
    I'll have PSK31, RTTY, Pactor, AMTOR, SITOR, NAVTEX, WEFAX, Packet and
    other modes I can't remember before we put to sea. Can't wait to work
    PSK31 from W4CSC/MM2 on the way to Daytona Beach and Bermuda this

    What did you say your call is? I didn't see it in your post? Why are
    you hiding behind that rock?

    He'd probably have fainted if he could have seen my crossband packet
    node on 14.105 running for 4 years to my 2M packet node at 330' a few
    years back. I lost interest in packet because of the net. PSK31
    fascinates me, now. Hell, it copies signals you can't even DETECT
    with your ears on 14.070!
