Wide Coverage VHF (2m) Ottawa Area repeaters

If you read my previous post then you might remember that the City of Ottawa is offering limited urban camping at selected arenas and community centres for the week long Canada Day celebrations.

If you are driving in to Ottawa with your RV,  these frequencies (For the ham radio types) might be helpful.  The greater Ottawa area has many repeaters but here are some of the more stable wide coverage ones.

The repeater guides show many more repeaters for Ottawa…  but as of the time of posting this…. the  short list gives you a choice of several FM repeaters that you usually find someone monitoring.
