Naselle UHF Repeater

Location: The Naselle repeater is located on Naselle Ridge, overlooking the town of Naselle, WA. The road is good most of the year, although snow can close access in the winter months.

Coverage: Naselle provides good access for
BeachNet users in southern Pacific County, with the generous range you would expect from a 2000-foot elevation. It covers areas of the county that would otherwise be isolated from the network, including Naselle itself. It also provides valuable coverage to the east, in the Deep River area and western Wahkiakum County. To the north, the Naselle repeater covers the Nemah area, including Highway 101 from the Naselle River to Bay Center, and the timberlands east of the highway. The station can be worked from most parts of the northern portion of the Long Beach Peninsula, and the Tokeland area. Coverage extends south into Clatsop and Columbia Counties, in Oregon.

The remote base incorporates transceivers for the 140, 220 and 440-MHz bands, and in addition to providing the day-to-day linking of this repeater to the network, is a cornerstone of the ARES/RACES Emergency Response Plan for Pacific County. This station is also used as part of the support for the Hood-To-Coast Relay each year. In addition, the site also houses two remote receivers for extended 2-meter coverage of the same areas. While the installation and coordination of 2-meter repeaters has become quite difficult as the band has filled up, there are few such restrictions on remote receivers.

Hardware: The repeater consists of a GE Mastr-II 110-watt continuous duty base station (running 60-watts) with a dual-section isolator and DCI bandpass filter, using an ACC RC-96 controller with a Mastr-II power supply. There is a dedicated control receiver for the repeater. The duplexer is a 4-cavity Sinclair BpBr type feeding a Comet X-510 dual band antenna (inside a Stationmaster shell) at the top of the tower, through 100 feet of LDF5-50 7/8-inch hardline. The remote base uses an ACC FC-900 interface and Icom transceivers sharing a CX-333 tri-band antenna (half-way up the tower) fed with half-inch hardline. The main antenna is shared with two remote receivers, one supporting the North Cove 145.310 repeater and the other part of the Megler VHF voting receiver system.
