Would someone please point me to the Part 97 rules for repeater control, that if done by radio the frequency used must be greater than 220 MHz?

See Subpart C -- Special Operations 97.201(b) Auxiliary station.

That rule was changed many years ago from 220Mhz to 2 meter and shorter. See section (b) for frequency exceptions.

Hi Bill, this is Larry.
Part 97.201(b) as Part 97.205(b) is what frequencies the station may operate on. The local repeater association, of which I am the vice president, is putting forth an effort and spending some money on implementing auxiliary control to turn the (2 m) repeater off (and back on again) due to whatever reason. This controller function can be done by telephone line, internet connection, or radio link. If by radio link what frequency is dictated to be used?

I would check with your repeater coordinating group.
