Amateur Radio Information

Calling All ROC Hams…

Quite a few ROC members are licensed amateur radio operators (“hams”).  To make it easier for us to contact one another at ROC launches, we’ve decided to publish the following information.

Common Frequencies

  • 146.535 MHz (2m band): Simplex
  • 145.180 MHz (2m band): Repeater (-0.6 MHz/PL 123.0) local in Lucerne Valley

If you can only monitor one of these frequencies, make it the repeater, as that will give us the best chance of always being able to connect. After making contact on the repeater, if you are within range of the lake bed, you can switch to simplex operation to free up the repeater for other users.

Wide area coverage:

  • 147.330 MHz (2m band): Repeater (+0.600 MHz/PL 131.8 Hz) on Big Bear Mountain

Avionics Frequencies

  • 444.55 MHz (70 cm band): K6AHF Beeline GPS (-1 and -2 SSID’s)
