All this as background for the following rant:One stage was attempting to use an established simplex frequency of 147.48.

Not sure if the volunteer monitors can do much of anything. There
were not really any rules violated (other than just bad form by
the offending stations). Although if the stations could be
identified then they could be reminded that they need to identify
every 10 mins.
Maybe next year the event should deploy a group of hams with direction finding equipment and baseball bats as corrective and calibration tools :-)

The real issue here, was not related in any way to repeaters.It was the attitude, lack of any effort to consider other users and the significance of the other users activities , failure to identify over very long periods of time, (actually never as far as we could determine) and the implication of it being "their frequency'...to quote one of them.." we use it as out intercom".
