CENCA is the packet coordinating council for the Central California region, boundaries of which extend NORTH to and include parts of San Joaquin County, EAST to the Nevada state line and southward along the summit of the Sierra Nevada range to Tehachapi P ass including all mountain valleys, SOUTH to a line drawn from Tehachapi pass westward to the region of Santa Maria, and WEST to the California Pacific Coast.
AREAS CLOSE TO THE BOUNDARIES LINE SHOULD CONTACT CENCA SO SERVICES CAN BE ESTABLISHED AND MAINTAINED ON A NONINTERFERING BASIS.
The following are COORDINATED frequencies for packet use in CENCA.
Beacons are QRM. Your beacon should be off. Only nodes and FULL SERVICE BBS systems sould be using beacons. APRS unproto information broadcasts on coordinated APRS frequencies are not considered beacons.
Nodes on KEYBOARD TO KEYBOARD frequencies are NOT coordinated. ALL BBS SYSTEMS IN CENCA MUST BE COORDINATED THROUGH CENCA The CENCA BBS registrar is K6RAU His address is K6RAU@K6RAU.#CENCA.CA.USA.NAOM The CENCA Frequency coordinator is KC6KGE His address is KC6KGE@KC6KGE.#CENCA.CA.USA.NOAM No new high level nodes are permitted on 2 meter BBS user Frequencies The CENCA Bandplan follows closely the current NCPA bandplan.
144.910 KEYBOARD TO KEYBOARD 144.930 BBS 144.950 DX CLUSTER 144.970 BBS ( 9600 kybd to kybd in Fresno area. ) 144.990 BBS 145.010 APRS/KEYBOARD TO KEYBOARD 145.030 KEYBOARD TO KEYBOARD. 145.050 KEYBOARD TO KEYBOARD 145.070 BBS 145.090 BBS 145.610 9600 BAUD PACKET KEYBOARD TO KEYBOARD 145.630 BBS 145.650 TCP/IP 145.670 DX Cluster use. 145.690 BBS use 145.710 9600 BAUD PACKET any NON BBS use. 145.730 BBS 145.750 TCP/IP 145.770 DX CLUSTER 145.790 BBS 2400 BAUDS 146.580 DX CLUSTER 147.585 BBS FORWARDING (2400 baud prefered MUST BE COORDINATED with KC6KGE)
223.54 BBS forwarding backbone 223.56 CENCA BBS SJV Forwarding Backbone 223.58 Coast Lan Backbone 223.60 BBS forwarding backbone 223.62 BBS forwarding backbone 223.64 tcpip 223.66 Keyboard to Keyboard (coordination not required for use) 223.68 BBS LAN 223.70 Node uplink (Monterey Bay & North Coast) 223.72 BBS forwarding backbone 223.74 DX Backbone The use of any of these 220 mHZ frequencies requires coordination.
441.050 BBS LAN. No nodes. 1200 bauds 441.500 mHZ anything on non interfering basis. Many usable uhf frequencies exist in the 440 band. Look, listen & then request coordination. Check out the ARRL bandplan then listen for a while. Uhf is IDEAL for point to point and 9600 bauds. To reduce interference to ATV systems, CENCA will not coordinate any UHF frequency below 438.000 Mhz. for any digital puropse.
Nothing reserved none prohibited if usage conforms to NARCC Band planning. Please coordinate on a as needed basis. KC6KGE Steve Hess CENCA frequency coordinator. My home BBS: KC6KGE@KC6KGE.#CENCA.CA.USA.NOAM revised 1/14/96
