Carney Hill

146.700+ (100Hz tone) & APRS, I-Gate, IRLP

The PGARC Carney Hill site is located on the hill at the junction of highways 16 and 97 within the city of Prince George B.C.
This repeater is usually used in a stand-alone mode for IRLP and for community events within the city.  An extensive upgrade is in progress so these photos are out of date. New photos will be posted when the job is finished.


We purchased this building from Telus. The graffiti was free.


This site is very easy to access for servicing so this is where we use our least reliable (oldest) equipment.
The computer equipment will be replaced soon by single board conmputers running Linux.
The RF equipment is at the bottom of our schedule for a major overhaul.




And when the batteries are depleted, the power plant will start automatically to recharge them.


This was how Onan manufactured the control panel for the power plant.


But we replaced the relay technology with a computerized control module.
