BDE ARC 12cm Repeater Information
[Photo of Repeater Rack] Output: 2425.000 MHz (planned - using 445.520)

Input: 2405.000 MHz

Callsign: K6BDE and/or KD6LVW - depending on the operation.

Location: 34°4'21"N BY 118°29'8"W by 190.5m (625 AMSL) elevation, overlooking the Los Angeles Basin. (Coverage Map).

This repeater is under test. As of August 1, 2000, the receiver section has been operational. However, the transmitter side of the repeater is currently set to deliver the resulting signal to the output of our 70cm repeater pair, using a PL tone of 79.7. This change was so that our 70cm repeater users could otherwise override any use of this test machine. This will continue until a proper, in-[12cm]-band transmitter and duplexer can be built and tested.

Services: The FM voice repeater function (no PL tone) is open to all amateur radio operators in good standing. Any and all other functions of the system shall be reserved to the membership and/or the trustee. Other functions may be made available at the discretion of the trustee or the Board of Directors.

The amateur radio information satellite program, This Week in Amateur Radio, may be heard on Saturdays at 6:00 pm local time via a satellite downlink through a dedicated receiver wired to the repeater's controller. Other amateur-related atellite distributed "information bulletins" may be available upon request.
