Located south of San Jose, in the mountains west of Morgan Hill , the WR6ABD digipeater serves the San Jose and surrounding areas well. Here is a reference map.
This site is readlily seen while driving up 101. It towers over southern San Jose. Listen for the 146.640 Mhz voice repeater there too.
This is a view of Mt Umunhum from Loma Preita. You can see the city off to the right of the photo.
You want me to go up there? This tower sure would make a great additon to anyones home station! Can you make out the digi antenna yet?
Here is view of the outside of the vault and the tower.
Still having a problem spotting the antenna? How about we take you 100 feet up the tower.
How about now?
What a view. Dont drop anything!
Another view from on the side of the tower. Wow what a view
The road heads up the ridge to the other sites on the Sierra Azul ridge
I bet its in there somewhere. Can you spot the KPC-3 TNC and its radio?
