A) plus or minus 600 kHz

NJ2X Note:
An amateur radio repeater is an electronic device that receives amateur signal and retransmits it so that the signal can cover longer distances.  Many repeaters are located on towers, hilltops, or on tall buildings as the higher location increases their coverage area (line of sight).
