2. Press your “*” key twice and then the phone number you are calling. The repeater will announce, “Dialing” and then repeat the number you entered.

Reverse Auto Patch Information

All Bethel area Hams have now been assigned a postfix number for the AL7YK repeater’s reverse auto-patch feature. To use the reverse-patch feature you:
1. Call 543-3919.
2. After two or three rings you’ll hear a beep. At this time enter the prefix number, 800, followed by the two digit postfix number and then press the pound button.
3. After entering the pound sign the caller will hear two ring tones that will be transmitted over the repeater. This will be followed by the announcement, “Call for KL2–”.
4 viagra on line. To answer the call, the Ham being called needs to key up and then press 800. The repeater will then announce that the call has been connected.
5. To end the call, key up and press the # key for three seconds and then identify yourself by call sign.
All calls are semi-private. This means the person on the phone can be heard by anyone listening to the repeater, but the ham connected to the caller will not be heard.Example of how to use the reverse auto patch……
Say KL2IU’s friend is trying reach him and knows he has his radio on. His friend calls 543-3919, waits for the  beep and then enters 80014#. The friend will hear the repeater transmit a couple of ring tones and then announce “Call for KL2IU”. To answer the call KL2IU keys up (pushes his push to talk button), identifys himself by call sign and then presses 800. At that time the repeater will announce “Call connected” and KL2IU and his friend can talk to each other. PLEASE REMEMBER to press the “#” key to disconnect after the call.
