Canterbury Area Repeaters & Beacons.

Canterbury is well served with a number of repeaters provided by a number of the local Radio Clubs. Canterbury Repeater Map

With the increased commercial traffic on VHF UHF and the proliferation of remote control devices on 433MHz it has become necessary to implement CTCSS on repeater inputs to prevent nuisance triggering. Tone is also present on some repeater outputs to allow operators avoid interference from the same sources. Split gate CTCSS is also implemented on some repeaters, this provides reduced receive gating sensitivity without CTCSS present and full sensitivity with CTCSS present.

To help understanding here is pdf of a QST article on CTCSS..
