(SK 8-18-2008)

The Stan Sears Memorial Amateur Radio Club is proud to affiliate with the 10-70 Repeater Association, Inc, the owners and operators of the 3 amateur radio repeaters that identify as W2PQG/R. Stan, a founding member of the 10-70 Repeater Association, served several terms as its President, was extensively involved with the Technical Committee, serving as its Chairperson for many years,  and as such he oversaw the operation and maintenance of the repeater systems. In honor and remembrance of Stan Sears, W2PQG, the 10-70 Repeater Association has agreed to use, in perpetuity, Stan's former amateur radio callsign, (now assigned by the FCC as the Club Callsign for the Stan Sears Memorial Amateur Radio Club) for its amateur radio repeaters.

The repeaters currently operating are a 2 meter (146.700 Mhz, Negative 600 Khz Input Offset, PL 141.3) a 1.2 meter (222.840 Mhz, Negative 1.6 Mhz Input Offset, PL 141.3) and a 70 centimeter (444.150 Mhz, Positive 5.0 Mhz Input Offset, PL 141.3). All systems are co-located in Northern New Jersey at approximately 1000 feet above sea level. This location gives good coverage throughout the greater Northern New Jersey area as well as into the New York City metropolitan area.

All 3 W2PQG repeater systems are open for the use and enjoyment of all amateur radio operators, of Technician Class or higher.
