History / The “Rest” of the Story!
The Snohomish County Hams Club (WA7LAW) currently maintains a repeater system consisting of two repeaters, one VHF repeater and one UHF repeater, as well as a remote VHF receiver with RF link back to the main repeater site. You do not have to be a member of the club to use the basic functions of the repeater, however if you do use the system regularly, we hope that you would consider becoming a member to support the system and help maintain and grow its usefulness in Snohomish County. A memebrship of $20 per year supports us and helps to kepp this valuable resource operating. For more information on membership, or to join and support the WA7LAW repeater system, email the cub secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
The main site is located in North Everett on top of the Baker St. Apartments, owned and operated by the Everett Housing Authority. Our equipment is co-located with a number of other users, particularly government users so we put a great degree of effort into being “good neighbors” so that we can remain at the site.
The VHF repeater operates on an output frequency of 147.180 MHz with a positive offset (147.780) and a PL tone of 103.5 Hz. The remote receiver for the VHF repeater is located on Gunsite Ridge which is also referred to as “Little Pilchuck”. The receiver also operates on 147.180 MHz with a PL tone of 127.3 Hz. The remote receiver may work better in the areas that the main receiver will not hear.
The UHF repeater operates on an output frequency of 444.575 MHz with a positive offset and a PL tone of 103.5 Hz. The UHF repeater is cross linked to the VHF system, though they can be “disconnected” and operate independently if needed.
The repeater has several special features that are available to current members. An access code is required to access the auto patch. Other features include a digital audio recorder that records and plays back 15 seconds of audio so that you can hear what your transmitted audio sounds like, time and date readback, and other features that I need to look up. An information page on repeater function is available to current members from the club secretary.
