"The 6 meter repeater is back in operation
Our association operates five repeaters with the association callsign W6PIY. They are all located atop Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose, CA (near the interchange of highways 17 and 85). All repeaters have full autopatch and emergency dial capabilities.
The 2 meter, 6 meter, and 220 megahertz repeaters have been cross-linked full time since the late 1980's. The 70cm and 1.2GHz repeaters, our relatively newer repeaters, have been cross-linked full-time since 1998. With a recent upgrade to the repeater controller, all the repeaters (not just VHF any more) have a Digital Voice Recorder. All five repeaters become cross-linked during the Association's Tuesday night Net so you can participate from any repeater. All of the repeaters are "open." The coverage is good in most of the south Bay Area. Our repeater technician is Chuck Kamas, AD6CL and our association trustee is Jim Patrick, KB6VF."
