This repeater system has 5 remote receive sites placed around the County and 1 additional remote in Orange County. The Doug Hall voting system continuously evaluates and determines which receive site has the best signal and selects that site. A home brew "Voter Tallier" creates the tones listed below. These tones on the repeater output are selected for the site that is voted the longest during that transmission.
RX Tones - Number of Low Tones immediately after the user drops their carrier indicates the site voted for longest time:
440 Hz Tones (low pitch = south)
