W6SF REPEATER SITE
WEED WHACKING
SATURDAY AUGUST 1st

The weeds at the W6SF repeater site on Red Mule Ridge are under control for another season.  Thanks to the efforts of our wacky weed whackers pictured above.  The brave souls risked the heat, snakes, steep terrain and managed to avoid injuring each other in their quest to protect the repeater from this years growing fire season menace.  

Sue K6SZQ and Gayle KK6RAO took care of the crew with plenty of H2O, cold beverages and a delicious lunch.  

John KD6FVA and Steve K6SCA managed a little repeater maintenance during the operation. 

Job well done until next year. 

CLUB REPEATERS

Located in the Sierra Nevada Mountains at 2500 feet, the club repeaters cover the Southern Sacramento and Northern San Joaquin Valleys. The call-sign is W6SF and can be heard on 147.165 MHz and on 442.250 MHz with a PL of 107.2 Hz. Club simplex frequency is 147.51 MHz.


SDARC also has a UHF repeater, operating independently, on 444.575+ PL 107.2.  This is a local low level Stockton repeater with the call W6SF.  As the project progresses, three receiver/voters will be installed via T1 phone lines and the addition of IRLP linking to other repeaters.  
TECH REP:  Steve - K6SCA
Coming Soon!

Plans are underway to install several voting receivers, strategically located on the 444.575 repeater (W6SF) in Stockton.  The addition of these receivers will sharply increase receive capability throughout Stockton and Lodi with the use of a hand held radio.  Check the repeater occasionally for the upgrade.
TECH REP:  Knox - K6NOX
