Our repeater group has numerous repeaters on the air. Their real-time status can be viewed on my Allmon page. In addition to the repeaters listed below members have privileges on repeaters in other areas including Las Vegas, San Francisco, SW Utah, San Diego, Imperial Valley, Palm Springs and more.
HB RACES & CERT
Our two meter repeater is an open machine available to any licensed amateur radio operator. Please feel free to take advantage of the excellent coverage provided by this system. The input frequency is down 600KHz and the CTCSS is 110.9Hz.
145.140 is the primary operating frequency for Huntington Beach Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (HB RACES) and Community Emergency Response Team (HB CERT). RACES holds weekly nets each Monday at 7:15pm. CERT holds weekly nets each Wednesday at 7:30pm. Visitors are welcome to either of our nets during the visitor check in part of the net.
This repeater is located on Santiago Peak. A secondary repeater in the Huntington Beach city hall basement has a small antenna on top of the cabinet to provide hand held coverage to operators in the Emergency Operations Center. Should Santiago fail Huntington automatically switches to an outside antenna providing coverage in and around Huntington Beach.
The system automatically selects the best signal from one of four receiver locations.
- Santiago Peak
- Huntington Beach city hall
- Palos Verdes
- Woodfern (home of WD6AWP)
We have an Allstar node and an Echolink node on this repeater. The Allstar node is 2532. The Echolink is node WD6AWP-L. The repeater beacons on APRS as WD6AWP-2.
448.040 & Private UHF System
While I do monitor the two meter machine nearly 24x7, UHF is my main hang out. It's basically a private system used by our core group and their select few friends. We do welcome the occasional visitor, particularly travelers from other Allstar systems. It's Allstar node is 2531 and it's almost always connected to our Allstar hub, node 2530. Santiago and Lukens simulcast and vote. There is a third receiver on Signal Peak.
The 2530 hub, and thus this machine, are almost always connected to our little network of repeaters which currently spans four states.
Blueridge is located in the Angles National Forrest. It's coverage is the better part of the Los Angles basin and the high desert. Like our Santiago UHF machine it's a private system used by our core group, their select few friends and the occasional visitor. Blueridge is Allstar node 2521.
448.040 Black Mountain (Imperial Valley)
This Black Mountain is located about 35 miles north of Yuma, AZ. Coverage is from Indio to the Mexican border.
448.380 Santa Ynez Peak
Santa Ynez is located about 18 miles north of Santa Barbara, CA. Coverage is along the coast Pismo Beach to Ventura.
