Um you never thought about that it could be involved in the Boston Marathon?

Again Luis,

I ask you to put more into the subject title. "Unknown" doesn't help anyone with anything. Unknown what? frequency? talkgroup?

This is the last time I am asking, please put more information into the subject line as to what you're going to ask about.

(Like in this case, "Unknown Ham 146.48" would've been more appropriate). Having better detailed titles helps us to find subjects if we need to return to them.

Thank You,

-- Mike

As John mentioned, this (and many other) ham repeaters are used for the Boston Marathon. The 146.48 repeater is owned by a member of and often utilized by the Worcester Emergency Communications Team. The homepage of their website has a little bit of "who we are and what we do" info that explains a little bit of what amateur radio operators do at these types of events.
