    I'm getting back into ham radio again, and forgot all of the 2m/440 repeaters I used to use. Is there a website which lists all of the so cal 2m/440 repeaters?

    Also, there used to be a 2m repeater down here which was known as the official earthquake info repeater. Whenever we had an earthquake, this 2m repeater was to broadcast info regarding the quake. Does anyone know if that repeater is still in existence?

    Also, if you know of any good 2m/440 repeaters in Los Angeles, please let me know.

    Looking forward to getting back into the hobby.

    Thanks,
    Rod

    Try these sites - these are the local coordinating bodies for those bands. #2m is coordinated by TASMA. #440 is coordinated by SCRRBA.

    I believe the earthquake info repeater is 446.900 [186.2 tone]; the web site is www.alert.org. #The list of the repeaters on that system is at this link here.

    If you're in Arcadia, we're neighbors. # #There are many 2m repeaters which you should be able to reach easily from where you are. #Here's a partial list of nearby open 2m machines:

    145.180- #156.7 #W6MPH #Pasadena
    145.200- #103.5 #N6AH #Arcadia [note: frequency is being absolutely clobbered lately by a D-Star machine in test coordination - and failing the test miserably, IMHO - in SFV]
    145.220- #103.5 #N6SLD #Santiago
    145.300- #100.0 #K6CPT #Mt. Disappointment [LA Co. DCS]
    145.360- #91.5 #KQ6ZZ #Box Springs [near Riverside]
    145.440- #136.5 #N6USO #Sunset Ridge
    146.085+ #110.9 #KA6AMR #Duarte
    146.175+ #100.9 #W6GNS #Whittier
    146.385+ #146.2 #KE6TZG #Keller Peak [note: pair recently flipped, 146.385 is now output, 146.985 is input]
    146.610- #103.5 #K6FAM #Sierra Peak
    146.640- #167.9 #W7BF #Diamond Bar
    146.700- #146.2 #KB5TJJ #Sunset Ridge
    146.730- #103.5 #K0JPK #Rio Hondo Peak
    146.820- #[no tone] #W6FNO #Johnstone Peak [note: CHP monitors this one]
    147.090+ #[77.0 or no tone] #AA6DP #Catalina Island
    147.150+ #103.5 #WR6JPL #Pasadena #[NASA/JPL audio feeds]
    147.210+ #[tone=?] #K6JSI #Sunset Ridge #[WIN System]
    147.270+ #100.0 #WA6ZTR #Mt. Disappointment #[LA Co. DCS]
    147.705- #141.3 #N7RDA #Oat Mountain [Earthquake net?]
    147.735- #100.0 #KB6C #Oat Mountain
    147.765- #131.8 #W6QFK #Monrovia #[SGV ARC]

    You're most likely to find me on 145.200, 145.220 [late night], 145.360, 145.440 [especially on Tuesday evenings for the AR NewsLine net starting at 7:30pm], 146.385 [late night], 146.610, and/or 146.700. On FM simplex, you'll usually find me on 144.350 [I've been doing mostly simplex lately, since I got that J-pole up], or occasionally on 146.580. I also have SSB capability.

    Here you go. http://www.no6b.com/ Bob usually has a good list of repeaters.

    Head down to HRO and pick up a copy of "The Original Southern California Repeater Location Guide," ($5.00) by Karl Pagel, N6BVU. It will list the repeaters (at least those that are coordinated) for 10 Meters through 23 cm.

    Not sure if the "seismic network" is still a regular net, but they do seem to meet when there's a noticable "event." Try listening on 147.705 MHz, (negative offset) CTCSS 131.8 Hz. It's located in Pasadena. Or same freq. CTCSS 141.3 Hz. Both belong to the same repeater trustee, so either may be used for the EQ net.

    Welcome back.

    Great, thanks a lot for all the info!

    KG6YTZ - The list you posted brought back a lot of memories. You're very close to my QTH, I'm in Arcadia. I'll try and catch you on the air.

    Thanks again guys!

    73,

    Yeah, I imagine we'll run across each other eventually - now that I have a J-pole up on the roof, you'll probably be able to get me on simplex with your VX-170.

    Edit: Oops. I mean your VX-7R.

    I'm near the NE corner of Lower Azusa and El Monte Ave., just a bit west of the north end of the airport, next to the 7-11/Citgo. #That'd put you about two miles almost directly north of me. # #Yep... #Definitely neighbors!

    You need to go to the 147.435 repeater, the home of friendly ham radio. Take on a strange persona, or if you're already a wierdo, just be yourself. You'll need
    a dualband HT and a radio with crossband repeat, so you
    can hear the repeater output, when you transmit. Top that off with a 200 watt amp and the biggest yagi that
    you have room for, pointed right at the repeater sight.
    You'll be one of the big dogs, able to interject your comments, whenever you want. If anyone has a problem with your style of operation, you can settle it at the TRW
    swapmeet. It also helps to be under the influence of as many substances as possible, when using the 435 repeater. Have I left anything out??? Welcome to the jungle......

    Wow... i found a shoutcast stream for that repeater. I wonder if they have a IRLP node...would give the locals here a heart attack if i linked it.

    I'm well aware of "435". I think you about covered it... A real sideshow to say the least. Some things just don't change. Thanks for the welcome!
