Handling of unknown frequencies that could be inputs

#1 Post by n1zyy » 01 Aug 2019 18:56

Obviously, we should not be publishing repeater input frequencies. And it's often fairly obvious what's what.

But what about cases where it's not? I've got a couple of oddball VHF things I found that I'm interested in discussing in the appropriate regional forums here. I don't think they are repeater inputs, but I'm only 95% sure. Is it OK to post stuff like that for discussion, or better to completely avoid?

So I think we're better off to err on the side of caution, and not publish what you think maybe an input. Instead if you want to email or PM me or Bill (ecps92) the frequencies, we can figure out. If we are confident it's not an input, then give you the green light to post it here.

Sounds good! I've got one I'll DM you, and one I wanted to get some more monitoring on.
