Providing amateur radio communications since 1969

The Mt.Vaca Radio Club (Call sign K6MVR ) owns and operates repeater systems in and around Sacramento, California. The systems provide reliable coverage for mobile stations throughout the Sacramento Valley region and beyond to Modesto, Chico, the Sierras, and parts of the Bay Area. We are an ARRL affiliated club. We invite you to browse these pages to learn about our club and its activities. Every one is welcome to our repeater. Please check the Membership page for information about joining MVRC.

The MVRC members request that all transmissions be short, direct and to the point like face-to-face conversations.
The MVRC system is a large party line that should be kept open for use by as many users as possible.
When entering a conversation in progress, identify using your call sign only.
The use of the word BREAK is discouraged. Give your call sign in the time period between when one
member of the conversation stops transmitting and the courtesy tone occurs.

When the system is being used for Public Service please give that traffic priority.
All Amateurs are welcome to use the open repeaters and in open contacts which do not impede the use by others.
