Lamorinda CERT Radio NET
First Wednesday of Every Month at 7:00 p.m. (1900h)
Hey Lamorinda CERTs, let’s get on the air! The first Wednesday of every month we, along with our LARIG (Lamorinda Area Radio Interest Group) friends, will be tuned into the Lamorinda GMRS repeaters. CERTs with repeater capable radios can tune in and listen and/or participate in a quick net. Feel free to tune in at the times below to see if you can reach them. The three Lamorinda repeaters are linked during the NET so that if you reach one, everyone can hear you!
Here are the channels for each town for radios programmed with the LARIG Yellow (or Blue) Codes:
Moraga GMRS Repeater, Channel 121
Orinda GMRS Repeater, Channel 122
Lafayette GMRS Repeater, Channel 123

During times of emergency, the repeaters are reserved for the exclusive use of Lamorinda CERT and Lamorinda Area Radio Interest Group (LARIG).
