This listing refers to one of the nodes that make up the Central Arkansas Simulcast (CAS) 575 repeater system. This repeater system combines multiple repeaters onto one single frequency with simulcasting and uplink voting, increasing coverage and ease of use while also decreasing frequency band usage. This repeater system is linked full-time to the “Central” regional hub of the Arkansas GMRS Repeater Group Network. The repeater system is open to all licensed GMRS users. Proper call sign ID is required.

How to use: hold PTT, input activator key followed by code (ex. “*60”)
- * – Activator key
- 60 – Parrot Mode (input code, and while still holding PTT, speak – repeater will echo your transmission back to you)
The Zello channel is linked to the 462.575 GMRS repeater system in Central Arkansas. CAS 575 is the Central Hub repeater of the Arkansas GMRS Repeater Group, allowing this to be the official Zello channel for the Central Hub.
TRANSMITTING IN THE ZELLO CHANNEL IS ONLY FOR REGISTERED MEMBERS OF THE ARKANSAS GMRS REPEATER GROUP. Thank you for understanding!
You must be “trusted” to transmit. To become “trusted”, FIRST make sure there is an admin online, then transmit a voice message stating your name, callsign, and location, and ask an admin to make you a “trusted” user. Until you have been “trusted”, your messages will only be heard by admins, and will not be sent to the repeater, network, or other users.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and welcome! We’re so glad to have you!
Open use always permitted to GMRS licensees as you enjoy the surrounding areas. Proper call sign use required as in all repeater systems. Proud to be part of the Arkansas GMRS Repeater Group
