Walden site is now a full repeater

September 25, 2021

This site has been upgraded to a full repeater.  It is no longer just a simplex 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.

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.

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.

Online Interference Reporting

April 19, 2021

We are streamlining our interference reporting from manual emails to a form-based system so that we can better create the database we need to build up our case with the FCC.  We’ve also added a “Live” button if you happen to be able to report in real time that will flag appropriate folk who may […]

Vail Repeater Transmitter may be down

February 19, 2021

We have one reliable report that the Vail transmitter may be down.  The receiver works fine.  We are not sure if it is completely down or just very low transmitter power.  Any reports from that repeater would be greatly appreciated.
