I noticed that when both the 2 meter and 70 cm W5DDL repeaters in Lafayette give their morse ID it is followed by 6R in morse code. Does anyone know that the 6R means?

Are you sure you are not confusing 6 -.... with / -..-. ?
Many repeaters ID with /R after the callsign to indicate that it is a repeater. I think that may have even been required at one time.

Aha. Ok. I thought that I was hearing -..-. but Iooked at my cheat sheet and all the characters with five dots or dashes were numbers and it didn't fit any of them so I thought it was a 6. Well, that's my new thing to learn today. I need a new cheat sheet with punctuation.

AKA "slant r". Was used many years ago to identify the station as a repeater. Some repeaters still use that added "slant R'' but is not required any more.
