KJ6JD at Carmichael Elks Amateur Radio Club

The Carmichael Elks ARC Repeater

224.88 mHz  PL 162.2

The machine is located at the Elks Lodge in Carmichael, at the corner of Cypress and Hackberry.  The repeater consists of a Spectrum SCR77 with a controller NHRC3+ installed.  It has Telewave duplexers, and then a 100 foot run of RG-8 to a Comet CA - Super22.   The antenna is currently on the roof on a ten foot mast, at about 40 feet. 

This machine was here when I came, still turned on and running, after ten years of NO attention, or even supervision.  I had Dave Fortenberry, Radio Supply Company, Auburn work on this.  It had "popcorn" noise in the signal, which was a capacitor in the PA that Dave replaced.  We then chose a small controller which would fit in the cabinet, and Dave installed that.
