  The Sierra Amateur Radio Club was started in early 1971, at Murray Jr High School. Lloyd Brubaker, WA6KZV, taught a science class and used amateur radio as a science/physics topic. A school club was formed and it was assigned WA6YBN. Students that were interested remember taking a school bus to LA for their FCC exam.

The translator came about by a group of locals that decided to build something different- a translator (no base band audio) in the system. Builders included WA6EXV, N6PR, WA6CAY. The club started on 2 meters AM with Heathkit towers and other military surplus modified gear. It was a year or so before we moved to FM when gear became available.
