A great debt of thanks is owed to the Hayfork Bally Repeater Association(SK). The members
established and maintained 2 meter repeaters in Trinity County as a valuable emergency communications
link for the protection of its citizens for many years.
In September of 2009 the HBRA disbanded and made a gift of the .73 and .925 repeaters to the Trinity County Amateur Radio Club.
The 146.880 was purchased in 2005 with funds from a government grant and is set up to be portable.
Dedicated Radio Amateurs have traveled to these remote mountaintop locations, sometimes in several feet of snow, to maintain these valuable solar powered emergency repeater stations.
