Parrot Repeater (recorder)

Currently offline with some hardware issues and other band issues 

A parrot repeater 146.425mhz with 3 minute record time has been sent up at Rochedale early October 2017

You can use this repeater to test your radios on and compare the difference between them and/or understand how that radio sounds to other listeners

Operational details - The parrot repeater utilises narrow deviation FM 

  •  Most new transceivers are narrow band ( low deviation)
  • If using with a wide band transmission, talk softly and it will be okay.
  •  If you still have distortion you could adjust the deviation control on a wide band transmission until it sounds okay.
