The software for the Cougar Repeater has been updated to reflect CW:
KE7GFZ/R and will be applied the next time there is a need to drive
up to the mountain and reprogram the repeater. Such a minor change
does not warrant a special trip.

The Bell Repeater (now located at my QTH) Voice ID was changed quite
some time ago to distinguish it from cougar. It is referred to as
the "Amateur Repeater" while cougar is just the "Repeater" It's CW
ID will be changed from /D to /R when cougar is updated.

Glendon is correct. When we
moved the original SNOVARC repeater to the Bell's residence
we happened to acquire the Cougar Mountain repeater. While
monitoring the activity on both at the same time I wanted a
quick way to know which one was active. The idea came from
one of the other repeaters in the building on Cougar
mountain where their main repeater was on Tiger mountain and
the one on Cougar was the backup. I can't remember what
they used but I think Tiger was /R and Cougar was /C
About a year ago I mentioned
to Jim K7ABD that it should probably be changed to /R
unless they use the /C and /D when monitoring both
Robin, you are only one of
the very few to ask.
serves, Carnation repeater was appended with /C and the
Duvall repeater got a /D. Allows means to identify source of
the signal you're receiving.
Here is something I have wondered about
since I got relicensed, but it never before rose to my
consciousness to ask:
Why does the SnoVarc repeater ID in Morse Code with the call
sign /C while other repeaters ID /R ?
