COLORADO CONNECTION NEWS

September 3, 2015: Red Cross Net: This has been a while now, just catching up on announcements. They meet on this repeater the first Thursday of the month at 6pm local time.

September 3, 2015: Colorado Traffic Net new time: The traffic net has a new time, 7:00. It is also extended to 25 minutes, ending 7:25. They have an update website too, noted on the Scheduled Nets page.

September 3, 2015: Preparedness Net Returns at a new time: The preparedness net is back! The new time is 9:30am and still on Saturdays.

September 3, 2015: 145.310 Transition: The transition period where we have a mix of PL tone support for the voting 145.310 machines is about to end. The last voting receiver supporting 123Hz will transition to 88.5Hz this weekend.

August 31, 2015: New Pictures! As part of an effor to refresh the website, new pictures too! From the work parties going on this summer, we're getting some new repeater site pictures. No mystery that most of the repeater site pictures are about 20 years old, so updates are way overdue. New pictures for the Salida (Methodist Mountain) and Leadville repeater sites have been posted. Views are always fantastic, main differnece is new equipment.

August 29, 2015:PL TONE CHANGES HIT THE FRONT RANGE!! The ongoing changeover from 123Hz to 88.5Hz has hit the front range. The voting repeaters in Denver are a mix of 12Hz and 88.5Hz. It is strongly recommended to change your radios to 88.5Hz during this transition period. The Colorado Springs repeater changed PL tone to 88.5Hz today. Repeater lists on the website will keep up with the changes. Best bet: if the repeater isn't hearing you and you are still using 123Hz, it maybe that the repater changed input PL tones!

August 29, 2015:Kremling temporarily down. The motor boat noise heard over the past week was isolated to a failing controller on the Kremling repeater. The repeater was taken offline today to repair the controller. Hopefully will be back soon.

August 29, 2015:Website getting updates! After quite a long haitus, the website is getting a few updates. Right now it is taking care of communicating system changes. Hopefully soon will get a more significant refresh.
