10METRE FM SUB-BAND NOTES

From 29.510 MHz to 29.700, The FM sub-band is usually channelized into repeater and simplex frequencies. The channels are commonly grouped into repeater inputs, simplex, and repeater output frequencies.

Simplex Channel, Worldwide calling FM: 29.600 MHz

Repeater Operation on 10 Metres

Repeater Input Channels: 29.520, 29.540, 29.560, and 29.580 MHz.

Repeater Output Channels: 29.620, 29.640, 29.660, and 29.680 MHz.

Common practice for 10 metre repeaters is to use a 100 kHz negative offset for repeater operation. Due to the very few available repeater channels, "odd-splits" (offsets differing from 100 kHz) and non-standard frequencies are not uncommon. Since 10 metres can frequently open up to propagate globally, most 10 metre repeaters use a CTCSS sub-audible access tone. 16 kHz wide signals with 5 kHz deviation is normal in this band. 8 kHz narrow signals with 2.5 kHz deviation can also be found.

Other FM Simplex Channels in use

29.300 MHz is a common frequency to find JA hams on. British hams commonly use the 29.400 to 29.500 MHz band for FM as well with 29.400, 29.450, and 29.500 MHz being common. USA hams can be found on FM anywhere above 29.000 MHz, commonly on the above frequencies talking to overseas hams. 29.200 to 29.300 MHz is set aside in some area band plans for FM Simplex use.
