Colorado Springs Back Online!

December 26, 2021

Doug (K2AD) was able to put together a repair trip and our remote diagnostics helped accurately predict the failure, so it was a one-trip repair!  Colorado Springs is back online. Before such decent diagnostics, such repairs were often two trips, one to diagnose, and a second to do the actual repair.

Colorado Springs Repeater down

December 22, 2021

We appear to have a power amp failure on the Colorado Springs machine. We have disconnected it as without the PA it isn’t much good. That site is still accessible, so hoping for a repair run by early next week.

Colorado Springs Back Online!

December 16, 2021

Power issues were thankfully short.

Colorado Springs Offline

December 15, 2021

We have a power failure at one of the link sites between Denver and Colorado Springs, so Colorado Springs isn’t linked in right now.  Hopefully this is short term and power will be back quickly.

Steamboat Springs Removed from our list

October 19, 2021

This repeater has been down for years and wasn’t actually owned or maintained by the Colorado Connection.  We’ve kept it listed mainly because we hoped the owners would restore it some day.  That hasn’t happened, so we are regretfully removing it from our list.

Walden site is now a full repeater

Thorodin fully operational

September 5, 2021

The Mt. Thorodin site is now fully operational with both the main and backup repeaters upgraded.  Thanks to Doug (K2AD), Charley (K4NYN) and his son Lucas, and Rick (KK0COP). The site is now back up to full power, full redundancy, and repeaters that have much better remote diagnostics.

Glenwood Springs Planned Power Outage

August 25, 2021

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.
