Hi Jim,

I don't use FM-repeaters. But I must say that 90 % of them can be
activated only by a 1750 Hz tone. Thatswhy there are special
EU-versions of FM-HTs and FM-mobiles.

But there are some FM-repeaters with activity all the day and night in
Berlin. So you can call in and don't have to activate the repeater
