|The HCARC repeater is located in Levelland, Texas just north of the city. The antenna is at approximately 290 feet. This repeater pushes approximately 30 watts at the antenna and provides county wide coverage. It is primarily used for weather related events, but you will at times find people operating in friendly conversation.|
The repeater is a Yaesu FUSION repeater and it will also operate in digital mode. The frequency is (T) 146.880 MHz with a -600KHz offset for a (R) of 146.280 MHz and 103.5 tone. If you want digital mode (Yaesu) the frequencies are the same, but the digital tone is 023. At some point in the future, it may be converted to work on the Yaesu Wires-X system,but that is not on the immediate plan.
There is also a Wires-X node available in town. It is not a part of the HCARC, but it is available. Search frequency is 146.550 with a 023 tone code. The node# is 18408. Active nodes may be searched for at YAESU Wires-X and selecting the active list.
