I am trying to figure out the best method to get thru the repeater.  From 
the response above I am trying to decide if the uplink stays stable and the 
downlink is tuneable, or is it best to tune both to keep on frequency.  If 
tuning for both is required which way is it normal or reverse.  I have a 
IC970 that I am using and can put it either way ....

At one point tonite I could hear my transmit get keyed but soon lost 
it.......not sure if it was the pile up or my tuning...

Some tips would be nice ...
