The repeater system is owned by the City of Long Beach and  is operated by the Long Beach Repeater Associates. The system resides on top of Signal Hill at an elevation of 356 Feet above sea level. This provides very good coverage for Long Beach and adjacent cities as well as the greater Los Angeles area and Orange County. Coastal coverage from Oxnard to parts of San Diego as well as Victorville and Hesperia is also good.

Currently there are four repeaters in the system. They are on 146.145 MHz (+) with a PL of 156.7,  449.780  MHz  (-) with a PL of 131.8, 223.800 MHz (-) PL 156.7 and 1282.200 MHz (-) with a PL of 156.7 These are open repeaters with emergency backup power. All properly licensed amateurs are welcome to use the repeaters and are encouraged to join the local A.R.E.S and Long Beach R.A.C.E.S.
