Ocean Shores UHF Repeater

Location: The Ocean Shores repeater is located about five miles north of Ocean Shores, and a few miles inland, at the county's Saddle Hill, site. This site is used for 911-Emergency communications, and has extensive security and surveillance features, including 24/7 video monitoring. This Amateur UHF repeater is included to provide an additional layer of communications, when all else fails. In normal day-to-day operations, this machine provides convenient routine communications from this remote corner of the county.

Coverage: Although the area is already served by several repeaters, including the 145.390, Cosmopolis (20 miles), 145.310, North Cove (17 miles), and 444.700, Neilton (30 miles) repeaters, all of these are fairly distant and near the limit of their coverage. The Ocean Shores UHF repeater provides high quality local access to the
BeachNet System.

The coverage is good over the entire south shore of the harbor, including Westport. The north shore coverage is useable as far east as the outskirts of Hoquiam, where it becomes spotty. Along the ocean beach, there is good coverage, as far south as the Pacific County line, and north well past Copalis Beach. The town of Ocean Shores is well served. The coverage extends more than 20 miles seaward, as detailed on the coverage plot to the left.

Hardware: The repeater consists of a GE Mastr-II 110-watt continuous duty base station (running 30-watts) with a CAT 200B controller mounted in a site-supplied open rack and using a generator backed-up battery power supply. The duplexer is a 4-cavity Sinclair BpBr feeding a commercial multi-bay folded-dipole array antenna through 70 feet of LDF4-50 1/2- inch hardline. The remote base uses a GE Rangr 16-channel UHF transceiver running a few watts, with a 6-element directional Yagi antenna to provide flexible linking.

A Weather Station is included at the site to provide Wind Speed, Direction, and Temperature readings on demand, and with the station identification. The Ocean Shores repeater went on the air January 4, 2013.
