The following guidelines are highly encouraged and shall be used at all times on all systems to maintain consistency among our members while traveling from repeater site to site.
LAG Repeater Guidelines
- No swearing, clicking, or horseplay.
- Emergencies take priority over all other communications.
- You may call other stations using LAG ID numbers. It is good practice to use them on all systems.
- Please read, understand, and comply with all FCC rules and regulations.
- Please be courteous to other users and monitor the channel before transmitting.
- Radio users may operate radios activated with proprietary Push to Talk (PTT) protocols. We prefer this which allows us to track users.
- DTMF (Telephone Touch Tones) shall not to be used without consent of the LAG repeater owner.
- Radios equipped with call or page capabilities are discouraged from using these features.
- Repeaters can be used at any time of day and do not need additional consent to use the system. This is a huge advantage of LAG Group.
- Repeater should not be used for everyday communications if there is a net, event, or emergency taking place. Please be courteous of radio traffic.
Every repeater within LAG is named. It is good practice when calling another station, to say which repeater you are on in the event the other station has their radio set to scan and heard your call on a different repeater. It is also good practice to wait until either the courtesy tone (on repeaters equipped with this feature) sounds or the repeater stops transmitting before you transmit, as not to interrupt an ongoing conversation while allowing space for someone with an emergency or other important traffic.
Check the repeater directory for system names.
LAG ID numbers are assigned to each member in order to maintain valid authorization as a system wide form of identification following a scheme pattern based on local systems throughout the organization.
