Seven Tips For Better Repeater Operating

Do you wait for the "Squelch Tail" or "Courtesy Beep"? Do you regularly get the "Purple Crystal Award" for timing out the repeater? Do you know the "right" way to enter into a repeater discussion (hint: BREAK is not the answer!)?

One of the benefits of ARRL membership is their publications, which provide both fun and useful information, including good operating practices.  While most ARRL members are familiar with QST magaine, which shows up in the mailbox regularly, there is also "On The Air" magazine, an online publication.  They recently published an article, "Seven Tips For Better Repeater Operating", rules we should all live by. We are providing the article below, with permission of the ARRL and "On The Air" magazine.
