The Central Oregon Coast Amateur Radio Club has over 100 members, most of whom live in the Florence and the surrounding area.  We have a very active ARES organization with a membership of over a dozen full and associate members, led by our EC, Bob Pine K6RMP.

Our 2-meter repeater is a Kenwood TKR-750 on 146.800 with a PL of 100.0 Hz, and our UHF repeater is a Yaesu DR-2X (Fusion) on 442.575 , using a DCS of 125. The repeaters are located on Herman Peak, 11 miles NNW of Florence at an elevation of 2000 feet. Both repeaters are open to all Amateurs. EchoLink is fully supported on our 2 meter repeater. Other communications equipment on site includes a packet node on 144.950. Major improvements to the system occurred in 2009 including a radio vault, 180' self supporting tower, and a new Cummins-Onan 60KW backup generator. A 400 AH AGM battery bank keeps everything on line during power switching and provides additional continued operation should the generator fail.

Our second repeater site on Glenada Hill provides a frequency agile digipeater to enhance packet communications in the greater West Lane community.

Although we call our group the "Central Oregon Coast Amateur Radio Club", we are a 501(c)(3) corporation operating as "Oregon Coast Emergency Repeater, Inc".
