Voice Services

RATS currently operates two open repeaters.  Both are Yaesu System Fusion DR-2X repeaters transmitting with 50 watts of power.  A 74.4 Hz PL tone is required for FM use.

DMR Repeaters

Previously, RATS hosted additional DMR repeaters on the DMRVA and Brandmeister networks.  As of July 2022, these repeaters are no longer in service.  As a service to local DMR users, our "Get Started with [W4RAT] DMR" guide is still available, but is no longer maintained.
