AMATEUR RADIO
Last updated February 18, 2015

Note in February 2016.  Like many of my pages this one has not been updated in a while, but is still almost  all accurate with the exception of a few repeater details.

Amateur radio operators (hams) have established a sophisticated network of repeaters in our region, a network that rivals the best of commercial systems.  Hams also transmit directly to one another on simplex, but in the scanner bands repeater use is the most common aspect.  These repeaters in some cases have portals that allow connections via the internet to repeaters elsewhere in the world.  The most popular ham band that is listenable on scanners is 2 metres. This page principally lists the 2 metre (144-148 Mz) repeaters in our area.   In relation to scanning it is the ham band most listened to, but scanners often also cover the 6 metre band (50 - 54 MHz) and 70 cm band (430-450 MHz), and some cover the 10 metre band (28 MHz),  220 MHz band (which is hardly used in Canada),  the 900 MHz band and the 1200 MHz band, the latter two are not yet much in use.    At this time I am listing only 2 metres as that is the only one of these bands that I normally use as a ham, though I am also capable on 10 metres.

Note that in 2014 there are three repeaters in New Brunswick (and perhaps some to come in NS) that are MotoTrbo, and therefore only accessible to MotoTrbo transceivers.

Amateur radio of course also takes in HF (high frequency) radio in the range from around 1800 kHz to the previously mentioned 10 metre band.    If you are interested in knowing more about amateur radio check these links:

The Maritime Amateur from Jim VE1JBL.  This is your starting point if you are looking for Amateur Radio frequencies for scanning, or if you might be interested in becoming a ham yourself.  This site links to repeater lists as well as most of the local area ham radio clubs.  I am a ham though almost inactive, but I value my licence very much. Some Halifax area and key ham sites:

AMATEUR RADIO 2 METRE REPEATERS IN THE MARITIMES AND EASTERN MAINE

This list was last updated in mid-February 2015 for the Maritimes and in mid-2014 for Eastern Maine

THIS LIST IS INTENDED FOR MY PERSONAL USE ONLY AND IS POSTED HERE FOR ME TO RETRIEVE WHEN I NEED IT, but of course you are also welcome to use it.  Having said that, I advise you to go to RON'S SITE: http://ve1cra.net/  and The Maritime Amateur (linked above) for up to date lists including repeaters on other ham bands, & other ham info and links.  Lists found there may be more up to date than mine, however I also include parts of Maine in my list, which they do not.
 

 
THE LISTINGS FOR EASTERN MAINE INCLUDE KNOWN REPEATERS ALONG THE CANADIAN BORDER AND ROUTES TO BANGOR, OR SOMEWHAT BEYOND BANGOR BUT THOUGHT TO BE ACCESSIBLE FROM THAT AREA.

Channel numbers shown in the left column are not normally used by amateur radio operators.  I have included these as an aid in programming or selecting frequencies in some of my radios.  Note that the frequencies from 147.00 and up are by default with positive offsets; however a few repeaters in the lower part of that range have negative offsets, thus accounting for my N channel numbers.  In my handheld I have entered these separately from the normal offsets, but of course has no bearing on scanner operation.
