SPECS started out as a net in the 1950's on two meters AM. Walt Reed (W6ASH) started the net, and in the early 70’s he decided to add a repeater at his house in Los Altos. Later the repeater was moved to the site at El Camino Hospital and was the first antenna at the hospital. The SPECS RA was subsequently formed as the legal entity that owns the repeater. The user group was formed later. Learn more.
