On Wednesday evenings beginning at 7 PM, the LVRA holds a net on our systems. Net Control changes each week to provide an opportunity for any interested member to lead the net. Check-ins are taken via radio on the UHF repeater system including our DStar system, via echolink, Allstar, and DSTAR internet links. You can certainly check out your equipment operation by joining this net. You are invited!
This net provides an opportunity for members and visitors to discuss Association activities, ham calendar events, technical experimentation and projects, system status and service events. If you have a question regarding amateur radio or the Association's activities and sytems, this is a great place to get answers.
The LVRA is affiliated with the High Desert Repeater Network (HDRN) which is owned by Gill St.Onge K7GIL. The HDRN links to the LVRA at Low Potosi. The HDRN provides emergency communication for San Bernardino County, and includes coverage from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
The LVRA is affiliated with the TWEMARS Repeater System which is owned by Sandy Samuels K7FY and Ken McLaughlin N7DPS. The TWEMARS system links into the LVRA via ROIP from Los Angeles to Kingman, then by RF link to Hualapai Mountain and then on to Las Vegas and or via the HDRN at Quartzite Mountain in Victorville, CA, and provides coverage in the Los Angeles Basin, the San Diego and Orange County areas, and from Los Angeles along I-15 and I-40 to Flagstaff, AZ as well as north on US 99 and I-5 to within a few miles of Fresno.
