are some useful frequencies, nets, nodes and other stuff locals and
visiting hams should know about. These listings are mostly
for those hams in Humboldt county California. Humboldt covers
towns south of Crescent City, CA to the north (HW-101), to Willow
Creek, CA to the east (HW-299), to Garberville, CA to the south
(HW-101). If there is data on this page
that is incorrect, please send me an email to my FCC call sign listed

Important local simplex frequencies used in Humboldt county:
National 2 meter simplex

is our local PACKET digital frequency--no hill top nodes currently.
For testing, we continue to maintain ka6oqj-2 at Woodley Island
NOAA weather station. I hope to bring back Horse mountain digi
National & Local APRS freqency. Good
coverage from Trinidad to Eureka with I-gate fill-in digi (ke6sls-3),
Then good coverage from Loleta to Scotia with fill in digi kf6bvb-5.
Further south along HW-101 is Pratt which is a hill top full digi
w6pkt-10. From Garberville south, outstanding APRS coverage.
Currently, tere is no coverage along HW-299 beyond ke6sls-3 local
coverage from Eureka--My goal is to get a full digi at Horse which will
give coverage nearly too Weaverville before year end--wish me luck!
