System Back up

August 22, 2020

Big thanks to Mark N7CTM and Ben KC2VJW!!  The system was only down for a few hours Thursday night before being restored.  They trecked up the hill by foot to get to the site and were able to affect repairs in one trip.

Entire System Unlinked

August 21, 2020

A failure at the Thorodin site has the entire system unlinked.  A team is actually heading up this evening with a backup team getting queued up for tomorrow if we are not able to fix it in one trip.

Colorado Springs Offline

We lost the link radio at Almagre which is how the Colorado Springs repeater gets into the rest of the Colorado Connection.  A work party is getting organized, so hopefully won’t be down long.

Durango very intermittent

May 19, 2020

The Durango repeater has been intermittent for the past week.  We know it is a link issue with the ISP we are using, but historically it self-healed after a few days.  It has not done so for at least a week now, so fear the ISP issue is not going to clear.

Grand Junction Back Online!

Thanks to Bill (W0BX) for making the trek to the site via mountain bike!  Roads are still at least a month away from passable but accessible via mountain bike (24 miles taking 4 hours).
