Repeaters

The JPL ARC operates several voice repeaters near the Pasadena and Wrightwood facilities in Southern California.  These repeaters serve two main purposes.  The primary role is to provide a emergency capability in the event of a man-made or natural disaster that prevents normal communications between the NASA Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex, the Table Mountain Facility and the operations center in Pasadena.

The repeater system is kept in good operating condition by making the equipment available for routine communications by licensed radio amateurs in the Los Angeles and Mojave Desert area whenever it is not used for emergency purposes. All three WR6AZN repeaters can be interlinked in any fashion as desired by the control operators for special events.

Linking the Los Angeles Basin to the High Desert

The WR6JPL repeater (LA Basin, 224.08) and WR6AZN repeater (High Desert, 223.96) can be linked by users of either repeater using DTMF tone sequences (89 connect; 80 disconnect). Immediately after bringing up the link, please listen 10-15 seconds before calling to verify that the linked repeater is not already in use.
