Default Newfoundland Amateur radio

I will be travelling in Newfoundland this summer .I will be taking a Quad band handheld radio with me.I noticed in the ARRL repeater directory a listing noting a transportable frequency of 147.00 VO1NET.What is this ? I have programed all of the repeater frequencies into the radio.I will be using a mag mount antenna on the rental vehicle.I will be at Signal Hill on July 1 and at Cape race July 10 2012.I will be meeting a few Hams on this trip.

It's an open, province wide 2M repeater with a -600 offset, but I suppose the book told you that. They use the term transportable in Canada, the whole purpose of a repeater being to extend mobile to mobile range.

It is most likely a province wide coordinated portable repeater pair. In Alberta we have coordinated 3 province wide repeater pairs for ARES, 1 Vhf, and 2 Uhf as well as 1 Uhf pair for SAR use. SAR members are encouraged to become licensed amateur operators.
