Long Beach UHF Repeater

Location: The Long Beach repeater is located at the Pacific County Shops on 2nd Street North in Long Beach, WA. This is two blocks north and three blocks east of the Bolstad stoplight. The repeater is housed in the Telecommunications building, and the antennas are on the 140-foot tower.

Coverage: The Long Beach repeater provides good access for
BeachNet users in the south Peninsula area, including Long Beach, Ilwaco and Chinook. It provides hand held coverage in the city, and mobile coverage of the southern two-thirds of the Peninsula. The remote base can be used to connect this repeater to any of several area repeaters, and is operable from the Pacific County Auxiliary EOC, presently located in the adjacent building, but soon to move to the new County Administrative Facility on Sandridge Road. The repeater also covers portions of Highway 101, as it curves around Willapa Bay. It also covers the southwest portion of Long Island, a popular recreational destination in the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge, a notorious area for poor cell phone coverage.

Hardware: The repeater consists of a GE Mastr-II 110-watt continuous duty base station (running 60-watts), using an ACC RC-85 controller with an Astron 50-Amp power supply. The duplexer is a Sinclair BpBr type feeding a vertical antenna through 100 feet of LMR-600 coax. The remote base uses an ACC FC-900 interface and Icom transceivers sharing a dual-band antenna for the 140/220 bands, and a yagi pointed east for the 440 transceiver.

The original station used a converted GE Mastr-II mobile chassis, rated at 100-watts intermittent duty, and running 50-watts, with a pair of fans blowing across the heat sink continuously (pictured at the extreme right below). The remainder of the station was unchanged when the radio was upgraded to the present continuous-duty equipment.
