Badger Mtn Repeater

The 147.360 repeater on Badger Mtn is now back in service and linked into the VHF system.   For review, the following repeaters are linked and operational:

147.345 – Colorado Springs
448.550 – Pueblo
145.430 – Raton Pass
145.295 – Salida
147.360 – Wilkerson Pass
All repeaters use 107.2 CTCSS tone

However, the BADGR APRS digipeater is down for repairs.

Thanks to all who kept track of me on yesterday’s trip.

New CMRG Repeater in Pueblo

We now have a CMRG repeater in Pueblo.  Here are the details:
   448.550 (-5)
   Tone: 107.2 Hz (like all other CMRG repeaters
     Antenna: Diamond X-50 at 18’ above ground
    Location: NE of Pueblo on Baculite Mesa. It is at the base of the 960 foot tower that is east of I-25.
    Coverage: north to at least Fountain, east, south , and west don’t know yet.
     This repeater is linked to the VHF system including Cheyenne Mtn, Salida, Badger Mtn, and Raton Pass.

Signal and coverage reports are appreciated.

Thanks to Derek-K0ATV, Rick-KE0GB, and Dave- WA6IFI who worked to make this possible.

Baculite Mesa Site

The latest edition to the CMRG network is the site on Baculite Mesa which links our Cheyenne Mountain site (147.345) to the Salida site (145.295) and the Badger Mtn site (147.360).  We will soon add a UHF repeater (448.550) repeater to the Baculite site.  

We share the small building on Baculite with the SkyHubNetwork.  Over the past couple of months, the high winds we experienced have damaged the roof of the building.  We basically need to put on another layer of roofing material.  Skyhub is working to get the material, but needs help in getting the material on the roof and installing it.  We need to help with this.  As a side effect of the average age of hams is getting older, we don’t have as many “young bucks” as we used to have. 

Here is what is needed.  We need 3-4 people to help out on Baculite to get the roofing material on the roof and do the installation.  Timeframe is in the next 2-4 weeks.  Baculite Mesa is a drive-up site.  No need to have a high-clearance vehicle or a 4×4.  Drive time from Colorado Springs is just over an hour.  

If you can help out, please contact me either by phone or email.  

Thanks for your help and support.

Link from Cheyenne Mtn to Salida Re-established

I’m pleased to announce that the link between the Cheyenne Mountain 147.345 MHz repeater and the Fremont Mtn (Salida) 145.295 MHz repeater has finally been re-established.  Last Saturday, Rick Hendricks, KE0GB, Derek Brown, K0ATV, and Dave Novotny, WA6IFI, travelled to Pueblo to install the (missing) link which connects the 147.345 and 145.295 repeaters.  A missing cable and a DC distribution box  kept the installation from being completed.   Dave made a quick trip to Pueblo today to install the box and cable.  Now the link is complete again.  Cheyenne Mountain, Salida, Badger Mtn, and Raton Pass are all linked.  

Thanks to all who helped out with this installation and to those who have patiently waited for the link to be completed.
