The IRG is unique in the PNWDigital network in that they have been with us on the DCI group for years. When the DCI c-Bridge moved from San Diego to join PNWDigital as our third c-Bridge, IRG came along with the move. Many of the PNWD members lived or were stationed in SoCal at one time or another and we desired to continue that connection.

Welcome.  Just a few things of interest specific to Inland Repeater Group that you will want to be aware of.  All three repeaters are Open.  They do carry some key PNWDigital Talkgroups, as well as their usual CA regional and State Talkgroups. See the Talkgroup viewer for more details.


Santiago Peak: This is a primary radio site that has coverage in LA County, Orange County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and San Diego County. Not all of these counties have solid coverage. Primary coverage is LA/OC areas, and also parts of SB and RIV. The greater LA Basin and Inland Empire areas south of the mountains.

Blue Ridge-West: Located above Wrightwood, this is a primary radio site that covers the High Desert. Palmdale, Lancaster, across Hwy 58 from Tehachapi, Victorville, and over near Lucerne Valley. There is some coverage in the LA basin, which overlaps Santiago coverage.

Wrightwood: Located in Wrightwood at 6050’. Coverage includes WW, and out into the desert along Hwy 395 and east to Lucerne valley.

As always, details matter.  Follow the Inland Repeater Group data sheet that defines TG’s to Time Slots.  There are differences between IRG and PNWDigital as far as the actual TG’s, and their assignments to TS’s.  Naming conventions are sometimes different.
