WD5B takes over two repeaters

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Two amateur repeaters in the Ventura area are now the responsibility of WD5B. The 146.655 mHz (Popeye) open repeater and a private UHF system. Both are coordinated in Ventura under TASMA and SRRBA respectfully.

The UHF system covers approximately the same area and is used in the internet linking system. Equipment is a Motorola MSR 2000 with RC-100 controller.

The 146.655 mHz system covers the valley of Oxnard and Ventura with a good view of the ocean. It also has a UHF remote link which allow me to access the UHF system when not in direct range of that system. The system is Motorola Radius units with ICS repeater controller.
