The standard W0TLM frequency list includes many of the common 2m / 70cm simplex and repeater frequencies for our area. Revision 10 was created on 06 April 2020 to track a change to the N0XLF repeater frequency. This repeater will be moving to 147.075 MHz, + offset, 131.8 Hz tone. The existing N0XLF memory has been renamed to OLD XLF, to allow for easy migration. Use the OLD XLF memory until the repeater frequency change has been implemented, then use N0XLF.
