Default VHF/UHF Repeaters in Western New York

Just wondering which area repeaters would be worth plugging into my Baofeng. I still have some blank memory channels to fill in it.

I'm in Buffalo around four times a year and Rochester at least twice and would like to know what popular repeaters the locals use in those areas.

Got my call sign on the 10th and now waiting for the certificate by snail mail.

Default NY Repeaters

Welcome to ham radio...that being said, check out the following sites.

New York Repeater Directory and New England Repeater Directory
www. artscipub.com/repeaters
and for Skywarn/Storm Spotting kBrews Storm Spotting Frequencies

You may also want to invest in an ARRL repeater directory found at American Radio Relay League | ARRL - The national association for AMATEUR RADIO.

The repeater guides will give frequencies and locations, but the OP asked which ones would be popular. That information won't be found in any of the references suggested so far.

For Rochester, I would recommend the RRRA Megaplex, whose 2m port is on 146.880 and I think the CTCSS is 110.9.

There is also a wide area repeater in Attica (between and south of Rochester and Buffalo) on 145.310. I can't think of the tone offhand, but for that one of the above-mentioned guides would come in handy.

And just for grins, try this site;

:: Repeaterbook.com :: North American Repeater Directory

It seems to be more up-to-date than some. It isn't going to tell you which is 'popular' but it should at least give you an idea of what's available and in use.

Just go to: LevineCentral Go on the amateur radio links, and type in your zip code for a map with all the repeaters on your area! You can also map search by State.

Try this, K1IW Amateur Radio Repeater and Broadcast Transmitter Database Websearch put in your location and radius in miles Hts are not long range so it will help weed out those at a distance. From there you canarrow your search to the specific sites to google to get an Idea how active they may or may not be.

There are several good repeaters in the Buffalo area, and some link to Rochester (and points beyond). You can find some good information at wb2jpq.com about the linked system. I still frequent the system via IRLP since I no longer live in the area, but usually use the 444.10 when visiting back in Buffalo.

When near Rochester, check out the 145.110 (PL 110.9) Bristol Mtn. repeater... lots of activity and a great bunch of folks.
