1) History of KK6SVL
The Spring Valley Lake Amateur Radio Club was formed in February 2013 and initially assigned call sign KK6COO on Feb 25, 2013. Vanity call sign KK6SVL was issued on April 9, 2013. Shortly after its formation, the club initiated efforts to install and operate a UHF repeater that would provide reliable coverage in and around the Spring Valley Lake area for three primary purposes:
• Provide reliable communications in the event of an emergency
• Provide SVLARC members a means to communicate and conduct amateur radio business
• We are pleased to report the successful installation of the Spring Valley Lake Amateur Radio Club UHF Repeater up on Quartzite Mountain. We have been enjoying excellent results.
