JUST SO YOU KNOW:
Do you know what kerchunking is? Will it help if I tell you it's usually used as a verb? I don't think you will find it on any of the FCC tests. Kerchunking means to key your mic and listen for the repeater tone without saying anything. Usually people kerchunk to check that the repeater is working or that they have programmed their radio correctly. The problem with that is that the FCC considers kerchunking to be transmitting and transmitting without ID'ing is against the rules. So please remember to ID with your call sign anytime you trigger the repeater. The official rules are - ID at the end of your transmission and/or every ten minutes.
