Repeaters & Nets
New Photo right - The small tower on the right of the building is our 2m antenna and soon our 220 antenna. The 220 antennas are at the bottom of the main tower side mounted. Transmit will remain on the tower, only the receive antenna will be relocated to the small tower. - Carl, WF6J, 10/20/07
IRLP - Node 7457 - (# is now required!) Talk to other repeaters over the Internet. IRLP Node Number 7457 is on the K6IS East repeaters 145.190 and 224.400. Our IRLP is open to any licensed Amateur Radio Operator. To call another IRLP node, press # and the 4 digit node, on your mike or HT keypad. Wait for the connect message and you are ready to talk. Be sure to wait a few seconds before talking after pressing the mike to allow transmitters to key up. If another repeater node calls in, answer as you would any station. To disconnect, either incoming or outgoing, use #73 on your keypad. Currently available 24/7. NEVER leave the repeater with IRLP connected. If you find it in this state, disconnect it with #73.
WEST - K6IS/R "West" is located near Zamora, CA. It is on 145.19- 123.0 PL. The squelch tail is set at 1 second. There are no autopatch or crossband functions on this machine. Some comments about the East repeater apply, except the West repeater has better coverage into Placer County.
