Loma Pioneer Repeater Club is an organization of active radio
amateurs devoted to public service, providing high-level emergency
communications in times of catastrophe or emergency. We understand
how important it is to preserve amateur radio as a resource
and a hobby.
The mighty high-level 2 meter repeater WR6ABD is on 146.640
MHz, negative offset, 162.2 PL tone. The elevation of the
receiving antenna is over 3,800 feet. It overlooks the San
Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay Areas on Mt. Loma Prieta.
The weekly LPRC club check-in is at 8 PM, Tuesday nights
Pacific Time on the 2 meter machine.
A digipeater and packet node are also
In addition to the 2-meter LPRC repeater, we have a 440 machine
at 442.900, positive offset, 162.2 PL, which is an open machine
run by our partners at the WIN
System. The "Western
Intertie Network" is a linked system of more than
75 repeaters worldwide. If you haven't checked out the WIN
System machine, it's a lot of fun and active pretty much around
