    It seems that our repeater frequency is being used by what sounded like K6ACS. Unlikely as it seems, since that’s the club call for a Sonoma County group, but there is a strong signal in Woodside. I’ve actually heard W6SCF on the other side of the tracks in Palo Alto, so I’m pretty sure there’s a conflict here.

    It’s the K6ACS repeater, in Santa Rosa. 146.730, PL 88.5. Same frequency as W6SCF, different PL.

    They come in surprisingly strong in some spots like Sand Hill road in Menlo Park, and up on Skyline Ridge. Not bad for 80 miles away.

    I’ve been burned by this on the scanner, which ignores PL tones. As long as you have the correct tones, it’s not a problem.
