Voice Repeater Access and Usage

All the voice repeaters in Kent can be accessed by a 1750 Hz tone of between 200 m/seconds and 1 second OR by CTCSS tones of 103.5 Hz (except GB3SK) followed by at least 3 seconds of audio this can be achieved by giving your own call sign twice to ensure the repeater is opened properly.
