N6JLY DMR Capable

Try it while it’s HOT!

N6JLY 70cm repeater now has DMR capability.

We are proud to announce that the club has upgraded our 70cm N6JLY repeater to a more modern Motorola SLR5700 DMR and analog repeater last Sunday, 10-22-2017. Thanks to Pet N6PET and David KO6TD for installing and setting this up for us. We also thank Arnold N6ASM for his generous offer to loan the club this repeater.

We invite the ham community to join us and try our new DMR repeater:

Rx : 445.680 MHz Tx: 440.680 MHz

N6JLY Digi 2

Talk Group 2 (TG2)  |  Time Slot 2 (TS2)  | Color Code 1 (CC1)


This is a stand-alone local repeater until a decision is made if we’re going to connect it to Brandmeister.


IMPORTANT: Make sure to reprogram your analog N6JLY radio setting with a 136.5 Tone Squelch to eliminate hearing the digital traffic when in analog mode.

Crescenta Valley Radio Club is an organization over half a century old. Our members are amateur radio operators who share interests in radio and service to our community. Members help new members starting the hobby as well as helping other members with technical and operational problems of getting on the air. We keep ourselves up to date with the technological changes by inviting expert speakers to our meetings. CVRC closely supports GEARS (Glendale Emergency Auxiliary Radio). Many members are in both organizations and have provided communications for an emergency at Glendale Memorial Hospital, and with Cruise Night, the Montrose Christmas Parade, and various local themed running events. We meet once a month on the second Thursday of the month at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital at 7:00PM. Every Sunday we hold two nets. On our 445.680 repeater, we hold the No Chit Chat net at 7:50PM, and at 8:00PM, we switch to our 146.025 repeater for the Whats Going On Net. Both repeaters are located on top of Mount Thom and share use the city's antenna tower. Their power is backed up by both batteries and an emergency generator. We have several annual events. In June, we participate in the National Field Day by setting up several stations in Verdugo Park and operating completely "off the grid". Every August we have a barbecue in Crescenta Valley Park with a Fox Hunt activity where the members try to locate a hidden transmitter. When December comes around we come together for a traditional holiday dinner.
