Glenwood Springs Planned Power Outage

Power to the Glenwood Springs site will be removed as part of some planned power line maintenance.  The outage is planned for August 30th from 7am-6pm.  Grand Junction should not be affected.

Kremmling back online!

August 23, 2021

The Kremmling repeater which has been down for several years is finally back online!  To restore it we needed to change locations requiring several scouting trips, a trip to lay down new conduit for power to the new building, and finally a trip installing of the repeater itself.

Vail back up!

August 23, 2021

The Vail machine is backup and fully operational!  The main failure was a rodent one, some critical cables were treated as food. The replacement cables are now in conduit.

Leadville fully operational!

August 23, 2021

The Leadville machine is back up and fully operational with a completely new solar power system (panels, batteries, and controllers).  The loss of microwave comms was due to both microwave radios being blown, most likely due to a lightning strike.  That restores our microwave link all the way to Grand Junction again too.
