Sacaton Peak repeater
Talk-in frequency used prior to launch and tracking team coordination during flight (when the ANSR cross-band repeater is not available) is the Sacaton Peak repeater, 447.725/442.725 MHz 100.0 Hz CTCSS tone.
Traffic on the cross-band input can inhibit the beacon activity from the payload computer, therefore it is recommended an alternate simplex frequency, 145.560 which is the repeater input with no offset, be used in the critical minutes prior to and during payload landing and recovery.
Payload frequency plan:
Cross Band FM Voice Repeater
Details at http://ad7zj.net/kd7lmo/index-2.html
Input: 145.560 MHz/162.2 Hz CTCSS tone
Output: 445.525 MHz
Linked: to IRLP Node 9255
KA7NSR-6 Frequency is 144.340, transmits at :08 and :38 seconds of each minute
KA7NSR-7 Frequency is 445.925, transmits at :00 and :30 seconds of each minute
KA7NSR-8 Frequency is 144.340, transmits at :20 and :50 seconds of each minute
KA7NSR-9 Frequency is 445.925, transmits at :15 and :45 seconds of each minute
ANSR's mobile digipeaters will repeat these beacons locally to 144.390
I-gates on 144.390 based systems will repeat these beacons to the Internet
For Internet tracking use: http://aprs.fi/?call=KA7NSR-6 (or -7,-8,-9)
FM audio beacons will transmit CW (Morse code) on 147.515
Occasional flights will have live FM video transmitted on 2432.000
