They are on different frequencies but are housed in the same location. The JJ Repeater is on the business band where the "Spider Repeater" is on the ham band. The Spider repeater also has a link to the KA6GWY (146.805) repeater network if you need to reach out beyond the Rubicon trail.

As noted, the Jeepers Jamboree repeater is in the business band. So that means you need to have the permission of the license holder to use it, though you don't have to have a ham license. It works in the Rubicon, but not outside the Rubicon. Works very well to call from say, Loon Lake to Rubicon Springs.

461.6625 Receive, 446.6625 Transmit, PL 136.5


The ham repeater (at Spider Lake) is typically known as the Rubicon Repeater. Its a ham repeater, so you must have a ham license to use it. If you don't have one, and are a Rubicon user, you should get one, it isn't very hard and it'll open up a whole world of uses. For instance, there are good repeater systems in Saint George (Sand Hollow Trail System and other trails), Marysvale (Apache trail System), Moab, Las Cruces/Elephant Butte, Johnson Valley, etc.

The Rubicon repeater recognizes two different PL tones. One of them operates the repeater inside the Rubicon, and it has handheld coverage from Wentworth Springs and Loon to Miller Lake. The other PL tone has the same coverage inside the Rubicon, but also turns on a link transmitter to link the Rubicon repeater to the 146.805 repeater on the west slope of El Dorado County. That's real useful in an emergency or even if you just need someone to bring you an axle or a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

444.9875 Receive, 449.9875 Receive, PL 156.7 (Rubicon coverage)

444.9875 Receive, 449.9875 Receive, PL 107.2 (Rubicon coverage plus the .805 link)


There is also a Tahoe machine that links into the system:

145.350 Receive, 146.205 Transmit, PL 123.0

And of course the main system on the west slope of El Dorado County:

146.805 Receive, 146.205 Transmit, PL 123.0


Hope this helps,

John

EDIT: Just looked back through this thread and realized most of this info is already posted. THe big change is that the Tahoe repeater's transmitter frequency has been changed. All of the info in this post is currently correct.
