Winter 2020 Plans!

November 24, 2020

With summer officially over we are turning out attention to our winter-accessible repeaters.  Our focus for this winter is a significant upgrade to the Colorado Springs site capabilities.  See the “Plans – Winter 2020” tab at the top for details.


Fort Collins repeater down temporarily

November 17, 2020

We noted today the machine was having issues, so have temporarily shut it down.  We expect it to be back up (and better!!) by the end of Thanksgiving weekend.

 


Colorado Springs back online!

November 9, 2020

With other equipment at that site working but not ours, we assumed it was an equipment failure, not power.  Best guess now is that it was one phase of the power failing and we were on that phase.  In any event, the link is back up and Colorado Springs is back online!  A trip is still being planned, just not as urgent as it was.


Colorado Springs Offline

November 9, 2020

The microwave relay site connecting Colorado Springs to the rest of the system has gone offline.  This means the COS repeater is working, but for local traffic only.  Short of a spontaneous recover, it will take a site visit to repair with plans to do this being made.  We will update you as plans evolve.


Grand Junction back on Microwave Backbone

November 6, 2020

The microwave link to Grand Junction has been restored.  We had a backup link, but it wasn’t as reliable, so now the  link should be fully reliable.
