Bear Valley Springs Emergency Radio Team (BVS ERT) – The team includes members from the communities of Bear Valley Springs, Stallion Springs, Alpine Forest, Tehachapi, and Sand Canyon. We also have team members from areas outside of these communities.
Primary EMCOMM Repeater: BVS Repeater, 146.700(-) 123.0 Tone (W6SLZ) This is the primary repeater used in the weekly BVSERT Net on Sunday nights (1900 local). In the event that this repeater is down or goes offline, the backup repeater (on the same frequency) will be brought online.
Back-up EMCOMM Calling Frequency: 145.580 Simplex In the event that the Primary and Secondary BVSERT EMCOMM Repeaters are down, the team will utilize the Simplex frequency of 145.580 This will require more teamwork and exercise the team’s ability to relay messages to and from Net Control.
