147.360mHz N7PI /R repeater - Kinport           (parc home page Link)
& the APRS digi-peater on 144.39 

Mt. Kinport  located 6 miles SW of the I-15 Center Street Exit (69) at 7200 feet.
It operates on 147.360 +600kHz offset  ... 100Hz Pl required

This repeater has a 10 meter FM Link on 29.600mhz

LINK Information.  please understand,  29.600mHz is 10 meters.. This is the FM Calling frequencies.
10 meters does have world wide propagation (at times),  so if your setting around, with nothing to do
turn the link on and see if anything is bouncing off the ionosphere .  

How to tell which band a signal is on
if  the link is on
a station on 10 meters will cause a Hi & Low Beep,  "like" a  BEEP BOOP sound.. ,  at the end of his transmission 
a 2 meter station will cause a single beep at the end of his transmission ,  Which also indicates the 3 minute timer has been reset.


    When a Link is on, any traffic or QSO occuring on 2 meters is transmitted on 10 meters as well as two meters
    if someone out there in "radio land"  hears you, you'll probably have breaking station wanting to take advantage of the propagation.   

Codes   010 turns 10 meters,
            000 turns OFF
10m turns

other test codes   123  tests your audio. 
Press 123, unkey your radio, repeater says "ready", Key your radio and make a test transmission, when you unkey it will be play back.

AUTO UN - LINK, be advised.
When you press 000 it will turn off the 10 meter link
or if you just leave the link on it will automatically unlink after approximately 4 hours,
No warning, it just happens.....  it could be in the middle of your QSO,
this timer can be reset at any time by pressing 010 .
