Default Antelope Valley APCO 25 question

I have Motorola Radios that I use for 2 meters and 70 cm and live in the Lancaster/Palmdale/Rosamond area in the Antelope Valley. I don't know of any APCO 25 ham repeaters in my area. Please send me info if there is any in my area. I am interested in radio sites like Government Peak, Double, Mojave, Ten Hi, Hauser Peak, Bald Mountain, Frazier Peak, Blue Ridge, Tehachapi, Onyx, Keller to name a few. All of these repeaters I can bring up from my house but I am not aware of any in my area that are APCO 25

Might do some googling and check repeater book. Seems that more than often word of mouth is about the only way to hear about P25 repeaters.

Only one of the 3 around me is listed anywhere...

I've got a P25 enabled radio that I'd love to use on the ham bands in digital mode, but haven't found any luck in finding a repeater that is somewhere in my regular commute between Santa Clarita and Burbank (with occasional forays into Anaheim).

Are you certain that machine is still on the air? Isn't K6CCC an SK?

Jim Walls, K6CCC, is very much alive and not only manages a P25 70cm system but he also helps manage ICIS for the City of Glendale.

K6CCC's repeater can be worked from an HT in a car in downtown Santa Ana - it's great.

What were the other machines you found, and have you tried them out?

I'd love to become a member of K6CCC's system, so I can use my P25 radio on something (well, anything, actually). Any idea how to contact K6CCC and see if that's a possibility?

I am tried to contact him on the radio and I could never get an answer back. Also there are now active APCO repeaters on Oat, Santiago, Vista Peak in north county San Diego, and Black mountain in San Diego central between the 5 and the 15 just north of Claremont Mesa

In addition I could bring up both repeaters on Oat and Santiago from my house in Southern Kern County in the High Desert

Default P25 MMDVM on Oat

K6PUW Valley Digital ARC – The first Digital Voice Multimode Repeater in Southern California

447.200 Don has a Multi mode repeater on OAT. you need to use your DMR ID to access it.... Be sure to listen in Analog mode first cause its usually connected to DSTAR..


K6CCC is very spotty in Santa Clarita cause of its location.....


K6CCC Machine, make sure you program in Mixed mode RX as he has private users on the Analog side... You do not want to accidentially step on someone... He has the info on his web page ...
