Repeaters & NETs

LVRAC Repeaters

The Las Vegas Radio Amateur Radio Club operates the K7UGE – LINKED repeaters on 146.940 MHz. (PL 100.0) and 448.500 MHz. (PL 100.0) both with the standard offsets.

SPEACIAL NOTE: Due to Construction at Southern Hills Hospital the 448.500 MHz. UHF repeater is offline. Therefore the “LVRAC NET” and the “LVRAC Thursday Knights Roundtable” will operate solely on the 2 Meter VHF Repeater (146.940 MHz.) located at the Westgate Resort & Casino.

We have a new addition to the K7UGE family of repeaters. The new repeater is at its new home high atop the Westgate Resort & Casino, 3000 Paradise Rd., Las Vegas, Nevada. The repeater has a frequency of 447.200 MHz. with a standard negative offset and a PL tone of 100.0 Hz. Please feel free to check it out and send your comments to our Repeater Trustee.

Also there is another new repeater coming in 2022. It will be located at the City of Las Vegas Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 7551 W. Sauer Dr., Las Vegas, Nevada. This repeater will be a 2 Meter VHF repeater with a frequency of 146.910 MHz., standard negative offset and a PL tone of 100.0 Hz.
