The maximum channel label size is eight characters. The satellite, like a repeater, typically operates full duplex to instantly retransmit on one band signals received on the other. The Electronic Industries Association EIA and Bell Labs designed the tones used so that none were a harmonic of any other, to keep the encode and decode circuits simpler. Earth stations can listen to the downlink frequency and transmit on the uplink frequency when the ISS is in range and crew members are on the air. A disadvantage of the "rubber duck" antenna supplied with most handheld radio transceivers is it does not transmit or receive as effectively as a full-sized antenna. IEEE recommended practice for measurements and computations of radio frequency electromagnetic fields with respect to human exposure to such fields, kHz GHz.
Simplex, Duplex, Offset and Split
Repeaters are usually installed where they have wide receive coverage areas. Turn the M's power back ON. Base station mics have a monitor button next to the PTT button to disable the decoder, allowing the operator to check for traffic. Satellites use one ham band for the uplink and another ham band for the down link. That was good for being heard by the repeater, but not so good if you wanted to hear the repeater.

Repeaters & CTCSS What Are They?
Press RPT and hold until icon disappears. In place of on-air station identification when sending signals to a radio control model using amateur frequencies a label indicating the licensee's name, call sign and address must be affixed to the transmitter. Ham Video is downlink only. If a lead-acid storage battery is charged or discharged too quickly the battery could overheat and give off flammable gas or explode. It can be set up, according to your flavor of radio, to have different ways in which to cross band repeat. Put the M into the Channel Mode.
An LED is commonly used as a visual indicator. The uplink is the earth station's transmitting frequency. Turn the right knob left or right until the desired number in the selected column is displayed in the 1 KHz column in this example 3. If you wait until you hear this beep normally a couple of seconds , before you respond, you can be sure that you are pausing a suitable length of time. The thing you need to ask yourself with the 6 band change rule is when do I do it. Tam Simulcast System — Linked Ch.
