JARC's Downtown Juneau Repeater (KL7JRC-R) is located on Mt. Roberts, seen here from across the channel in Douglas, Alaska. No need to worry about your handy talkie from cruise ships as the repeater is a thousand feet above you!
Repeater Status (as of February, 2013):
As noted, some of these repeaters are linked, and share an autopatch. All are open repeaters and visitors are welcome. Repeater use is encouraged; simplex doesn't work all that well in our hilly terrain. Please frequently pause so other traffic has an opportunity to break.

EINSTEIN ON RADIO: "I am often asked how radio works. Well, you see, wire telegraphy is like a very long cat. You yank his tail in New York and he meows in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? Now, radio is exactly the same, except that there is no cat." __Attributed to Albert Einstein
