Club Repeaters

We operate three repeaters, 2 VHF and 1 UHF. They are all open access, no tone required.

The club's first VHF repeater WB0HSI is on 146.67 (-) and is located north of I-70 between O'Fallon and Lake St. Louis. This system has two remote receiver sites; St. Charles 145.330 site, and Augusta as well as the main site receiver.

The club's second VHF repeater KO0A is on 145.33 (-) and is located near Lindenwood college in St. Charles. It has three remote receive sites; downtown St. Louis, Warrenton, and Augusta as well as the main repeater site.

Both VHF repeater systems employ a voter that monitors the signal from the associated remote receive sites, plus the main site and "votes" the cleanest signal to be transmitted through the repeater in real time. Whenever a remote is voted, it will ID along with the main repeater at ten minute intervals. If multiple remotes have been used during a ten minute period, all of those will be ID'd along with them main site.

The third repeater WB0HSI is on UHF 444.65 (+) and is co-located with the KO0A VHF repeater in St. Charles. This system does not have any remote sites.
This repeater is set to DMR mode, Color Code 2, TS1 = 31012 STL Metro and TS2 - 3101 Missouri Statewide. Both are static talkgroups through Brandmeister.

The KO0A repeater on 145.33 (-) is frequently utilized by the National Weather Service for sever weather/storm spotting.

SCARC supports emergency communications through the Missouri Rapid Response Team, which utilizes the KO0A repeater as it's primary repeater system.
