I've been remiss in keeping up with the changes in Part 97, especially in the area of repeater stations. A recent discussion about changing the time-out timer's period had me scurrying to the CFR, and lo, I could not see the requirement in the section dealing with repeater stations.
I do see a mention of a timer required in telecommand service (sub part b. of several parts of 213) but the other requirements of that part do not apply to automatically controlled repeater stations, it seems to me.
I went back to 1999 and found the same language.
I don't see where a repeater station under automatic control is said to be a station operated under telecommand.
What am I missing? Is what we used to call 'remotely controlled repeater stations' now called repeater stations under telecommand?
