Geocache Net In Southern California...

Recommended Posts

If all works out like I think it will go, we will have a WEEKLY net here in Southern California (Orange County and parts of LA) on a local 2-meter/220 repeater. I'm shooting for Thursday evenings from 7:00PM to 8:00PM.

 

We will have brief announcements and go straight to an open forum where you can ask questions.

 

I'll post more once I get the OK from the repeater owners!

The Southern California Geocaching Net has been approved by the repeater owners (Board of Directors).

 

The net will be EVERY THURSDAY from 7:00PM to 8:00PM on the following linked system...

 

145.400- (103.5)

224.180- (103.5)

 

The location of the repeater is in the Fullerton Hills (commercial site) in Orange County. If the net gets real popular, we can link in other repeater systems.

 

With the delays in IRLP and such, I don't forsee opening this up to a nationwide net just yet.

 

The first net will be January 1st! Hope to hear you out there!

Just tested it. N6ME 2M is a strong signal here. The 222 repeater is not quite full signal, but usable. I will try to check in. Thanks.

Sounds good to me!

 

I plan to try to check in, but haven't checked for coverage. I live in Lake Elsinore.

Wait a minute - you mean to tell me that there is more than one repeater here in the So Cal region? :unsure:

 

I was wondering why I have 100 memory channels for each band in my 742.

The 220 side of the system needs some work. We are aware of the problem and will address it in January. It works, but is marginal at best right now.

 

If someone has a remote base on 2 meters and would like to link in to our system, NO PROBLEM! I know the VERA system north of LA can link in 220 via a remote. Tell Jim Fortney you have my permission to bring it in on 145.400- (103.5)

Last night (1-8-04) we had the following check ins....

 

N6UZS (RFO) Richard from Orange.

K6NT (escout) Steve from San Pedro

N6XSS (Shifflett) Jeff from Fullerton

AA6CR (Geo-Jedi) Jed from Whittier

AE6GA (?) Travis from Lancaster

KG6BVO (new to geocaching) Brian from Whittier

KG6DKW (?) Rob from Glendora

 

The net lasted the entire hour and a few stuck around for another 20 minutes talking on the repeater.

 

Travis told us of his "FRS Activated" cache that will send it coordinates via radio if you activate it with the correct PL tone. He has a couple more that he will let us know about next week!

 

The nets are every Thursday from 7:00PM to 8:00PM. Check the top of this thread for all the information. See you next week!!!

I'm too far north to receive/transmit into that repeater. I take it that this isn't on one of the linked systems that SoCal is so famous for?

Are there any Geocaching nets on HF? There seems to be a net for everything else... I'll try to check in sometime...
