Ocean Park VHF Repeater

Location: In Ocean Park, a town and social center in the northern part of the Long Beach Peninsula. The repeater itself is in the attic of the Ocean Park Fire Hall, across Bay Avenue, north of Jack's Country Store. The antenna is only twenty feet above the roof, but the signal covers this population center well enough to make a big difference.

Coverage: Although there are several area repeaters that work well mobile, hand-held coverage has always been elusive in this town center. With the Fire Hall being a major shelter and nerve center during an emergency, the repeater is quite useful. Expect to use this repeater within 3-4 miles hand held, and 10 miles mobile. Normally linked to the rest of
BeachNet, this repeater can be linked to the 444.925 IRLP repeater on Megler Mountain, by a Control Operator. This provides a 2-meter port to the world-wide connectivity and just plain fun of IRLP for those in the North Peninsula area who may not have a UHF rig.

It also provides a potential connection to the Ilwaco 146.860 repeater, located at the south end of the Long Beach Peninsula, and owned and operated by the Pacific County ARC, which can also be linked to the same UHF repeater. During a disaster situation, the Ocean Park 145.170, Ilwaco 146.860 and Megler 444.925 repeaters could be linked in this way to provide a Peninsula-wide mini-net for Fire and Emergency Medical support.

Hardware: The repeater consists of a GE Mastr-II 110-watt continuous duty base station (running 40-watts) with a Link RLC1 controller in a 30-inch GE cabinet with a Mastr-II power supply. The duplexer is an 8-inch Wacom BpBr feeding a Hustler G6-270 dual band antenna through 50 feet of LDF4-50 half-inch hardline. The remote base uses a GE Rangr 16-channel UHF transceiver running 50-watts, which shares the antenna through a diplexer.
