Concerning the coverage maps below, the following applies:

  • Coverage maps are based on general elevation changes and line of sight calculations adjusted by antenna gain and transmitter power. Radio coverage is also greatly impacted by propagation so your experience will likely vary.
  • All of the repeater coverage maps below were generated using the Radio Mobile service located here: https://www.ve2dbe.com/english1.html. Our thanks to the owners and sponsors of that site for the use of their services to assist repeater owners.
  • Coverage maps for the two 23cm repeaters are not yet available because we do not have details on the antenna or radio power yet. We are still working to see if we can generate them.
