ARC
70 cm Shared Repeater Pair Standards

Shared Emergency - Public Service Class
These pairs are required to be coordinated and conform to the following guidelines.
Again, very limited protection is afforded these repeaters in their normal areas and none if in a
portable state, out of their home area. This class is intended to serve ARES / RACES groups
and other Emergency Communications groups.

1.   Maximum ERP permitted will be that required not to exceed coverage radius. Any attempt to evolve to a
      larger coverage radius will result in de-coordination of the repeater.
2.   CTCSS Tone Access is strongly suggested and the specific tone should conform to the ARC State Tone
      Plan or the tone can be assigned by the State Coordinator. In the event of interference between two
      repeaters of this class, it shall be considered a required step that the repeaters be made CTCSS Tone
      Accessible in the resolution of such interference.
3.   Frequency Pairs are as follows:
TX - 442.350   RX - 447.350   and   TX - 442.550   RX - 447.550 (2 pairs)
4.   Maximum Antenna height will be 50 ft. above ground level with NO permanent mountain top sites.
5.   Repeater will be for Emergency and Public Service Use only, (I.e.; disasters, emergencies, hamfests,
      road races, festivals or other Public Service events). Use may not exceed (3) days in duration or moved
      outside the normal coordinated area without notifying the State Coordinator. This class is not considered
      appropriate for regular day-to-day conversational use. Trustees who wish their repeater to be used in such a
      manner should re-coordinate the repeater in the Shared-Limited Coverage Class or the regular, coordinated
      segment of the 70cm band. However, day-to-day communications related to ARES / RACES or other service
      organization activities are permitted. (I.e.: traffic handling, training, nets, etc.)
6.   Repeater may be moved under the following conditions:
      a.   In a DECLARED Communications Emergency. Cooperation with any other emergency repeater must be
            observed and deference must be given to ANY repeater that is operating within its coordination.
            Notification of the State Coordinator should be made at the earliest convenience.
      b.   For a NON-Emergency Public Service or Amateur Radio related event, with PRIOR notification and
            approval of the State Coordinator. (If moved, CTCSS Tones must be changed or added, if necessary,
            to avoid interference with other coordinated repeaters.)

Shared Limited Coverage Class
These pairs are required to be coordinated and conform to the following guidelines.
These pairs are intended for limited area coverage for persons not wanting full, larger coverage
Coordinated repeaters or where no regular pairs are available for coordination.
Again, limited protection is afforded these pairs.

1.   Maximum ERP permitted will be that required not to exceed coverage radius. Any attempt to evolve to a
       larger coverage radius will result in de-coordination of the repeater.
2.   CTCSS Tone Access is
required and the specific tone shall conform to the ARC State Tone Plan or the tone
      assigned by the State Coordinator.
3.   Frequency Pairs are as follows:
TX - 442.650   RX - 447.650   and   TX - 442.750   RX - 447.750 (2 pairs)
4.   Maximum antenna height will be 50 ft. above ground level with NO mountain sites.

Fee Schedule for Shared Pair Coordinations
Currently, fees for Coordination have been suspended

Test Pair - 
                   NO FEE REQUIRED. A fee of $5.00 will be assessed upon request for voluntary

Emergency Pair -         A coordination fee of $5.00 will be assessed upon application for an Emergency pair.
