      Bob,

      Thanks.

      This repeater is most likely not coordinated. The frequency of 146.46 MHz
      is a simplex frequency, according to accepted band plans. That's why its
      input is not only a meg away, it is also HIGHER.

      The FCC recognizes the important roles of accepted band plans and repeater
      coordination. An uncoordinated repeater is liable to FCC action if it causes
      interference. Interference with simplex-operating stations on the output
      frequency could be considered just that.

      Many repeater frequencies are available, especially in northeastern
      Pennsylvania. Choosing an output on a simplex frequency seems unnecessary.

      73,

      Ray, WX3A

        From: http://www.arrl.org/FandES/field/regulations/bandplan.html

        Notes: The frequency 146.40 MHz is used in some areas as a repeater input.
        This band plan has been proposed by the ARRL VHF-UHF Advisory Committee.



        In a quick search, I found several different 2 meter band plans.
