VE6UV and VE6PLP Repeater have swapped frequencies.
ARES Channel one (1) is 147.240(+) 100Hz CTCSS and ARES channel three (3) is 147.090(+) 100Hz CTCSS.
Those members requiring changes to their FTH2008 programming should contact David VE6DXX after 1 June
Also, the Northern Alberta Radio Club has secured a roof location on the River Cree Casino/Hotel in the west of Edmonton at Whitemud and Winterburn Road. A new repeater, VE6JN was installed on July 12th and is on 147.330MHz with a positive offset and 100Hz tone. The ARES Edmonton 2M band plan has been updated accordingly.

VE6JN 2m repeater expected coverage for a receiving station with a 1/4 wave antenna 2m above ground level (typical hand-held).
The map colours are in "S" units with RED being S9+40 and BLUE being S1.
VE6UV and VE6HM transmit on adjacent channels (30 kHz apart). This causes problems in their operation. The solution for this has been in the works for about a year now, and will be implemented soon.
The schedule goes:
DONE! On May 24 (Tuesday afternoon), VE6UV will be taken off the air. Parts of the repeater will be used in the transformation.
DONE! On May 25 ( Wednesday), VE6PLP will be taken off the air for a few hours. VE6PLP will come back on the air on 147.090 MHz positive offset, 100 Hz CTCSS, hopefully with more sensitivity, thus greater range.
DONE! On May 25 (late afternoon) or on May 26, VE6UV will return on 147.240 MHz positive offset, 100 Hz CTCSS. We will endeavor to keep it at least as stable as it currently is.
