145.160 Temporarily Unlinked from VHF Link System

[9/24/2020, WA1JHK]  Well, it was up for a few days, now down again.  The temporary fix only held until the next power failure on the site.  Work is finishing up on the replacement hardware.  We'll get down there soon as time allows.

[7/2/2020, WA1JHK]  Sorry for the delay getting this repair done.  The coronavirus has gotten in the way of much of this work.  We now have all the materials and are preparing the hardware for installation.  Thank you for your patience.

VHF IRLP and Echolink Status Update

[Update 1/28/2019, WA1JHK] Work is continuing to get outgoing calls working from the VHF Link system repeaters on IRLP node 3990 and EchoLink node W0CRA-R.  Incoming calls are working properly. 

The node on our 447.575 Squaw Mountain repeater is off-line.  It is being repaired.

[Update 8/21/2018, WA1JHK] We recently received several reports that the VHF Echolink node, W0CRA-R, was not working properly on incoming calls.  We have resolved this issue.  Incoming calls are once again working.  Note that outgoing calls are still not working.  Investigation continues...

New CRA Site On-the-Air: Westcreek!

The new CRA repeater site is called Westcreek.  It is located southwest of Larkspur at 9200 feet elevation. A team of 11 hams representing the CRA, ARESDEC, and RMHam traveled to the site on Saturday 11/11/2017 to install racks, run cable, install conduit and AC outlets, install lightning protection, mount antennas and feedlines on the tower, install a UHF multicoupler/combiner and make low loss jumpers.
