Removing Craig from our list

July 29, 2021

This repeater is owned and operated by a local group.  The repeater works, but the link to the Colorado Connection has been down for a couple years now.  With no known plans to restore that link, we are going to not  list it anymore, but if it does ever link up will happily relist it.


Salida back online!

July 29, 2021

Thanks to Mike K7AIH and Ben KC2VJW this machine is back online!  A local landowner revoked the only access to the site.  The commercial folk had to use helicopters, we had Ben and Mike that scouted and hiked an alternate route by foot.  Helicopter access wasn’t affordable, so thanks Mike and Ben.

Breckenridge Repeater Temporarily down

February 12, 2021

The host site for this repeater is getting remodeled, so the equipment is being disconnected temporarily.  Expectation is that the repeater will be back online some time during this coming weekend.


Leadville offline while recharging

January 27, 2021

The Leadville repeater has been taken off line as a preventative measure due to limited power from the solar panels.  Sunlight has been scarce for several days in a row, so batteries are low.  We hope it will be back online in a few days after some more sunshine after this past storm.


Salida has been down

January 20, 2021

It appears the Salida site has been down for some months (October is our best guess) and we didn’t realize it.  We had two reports come in this week confirming it is indeed down.  It appears to be a PA issue as it can only be heard weakly with  a very good antenna.  That is […]
