Juneau Amateur Radio Club, Inc.
JARC's Downtown Juneau Repeater (KL7JRC-R) is located on Mt. Roberts, seen here from across the channel in Douglas, Alaska. No need to worry about your handy talkie from cruise ships as the repeater is a thousand feet above you!
A repeater users guide is available to all JARC Members. The guide includes instructions for the use of features such as autopatch, autodial, reverse patch, time, and signal strength reports.
Repeater Status (as of December, 2011)
As noted, some of these repeaters are linked, and share an autopatch. All are open repeaters and visitors are welcome. Repeater use is encouraged; simplex doesn't work all that well in our hilly terrain. Please frequently pause so other traffic has an opportunity to break.
The repeater custodian is Jerry Prindle, KL7HFI. Control Operators are KL7HFI, and WA6AXO. If you are having a problem accessing a repeater function, ask for assistance. There is usually someone who is monitoring the repeater frequencies and can help out.
