CMRG and Pueblo ARC Repeaters Linked

CMRG Members and Friends,

I have some extremely GREAT news to share with you. This afternoon, the link connecting the CMRG and Pueblo Amateur Radio Club repeaters was completed. The following repeaters are now linked:

147.345 in Colorado Springs (Cheyenne Mountain)
145.295 in Salida (Fremont Peak/Methodist Mountain)
147.360 in Lake George (Badger Mountain)
146.790 in Pueblo (Baculite Mesa)

With this linking, continuous communications is possible from south of Walsenburg on the south to the Collegiate Peaks and Hwy 285 on the west, to Leadville, Como, Grant, Bailey, Pine, Deckers, Castle Rock, and Limon on the North, and down Hwy 71 from Limon to Rocky Ford. This ties together the cities of Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Walsenburg, Alamosa, Salida, Buena Vista, Limon, Rocky Ford, and many more. This link has been a dream of CMRG for many, many years and has been made possible by the Pueblo Amateur Radio Club the use of their Baculite Mesa site. Many thanks to them.

Feel free to use the repeaters and meet lots of new friends.

Special thanks to Dave, WA6IFI and Mike, K0HYT for completing the final work on Cheyenne Mountain.

Repair work on Cheyenne Mountain

A tower crew will be working on our tower on this Thursday, October 27.
The crew will be installing new antennas for the 147.345 and 146.76
repeaters. Additionally, they will be installing the 1200 MHz DSTAR
antenna and performing other general maintenance work for us. As a result,
the 146.76 and 147.345 repeaters will be out of service on Thursday,
October 27. The outage will be from approximately 10am to 4pm, We hope to
be back on the air earlier than that, but please plan accordingly.

If you have time on Thursday and want to help out with the antenna
installation, please give me a call for details.

Thanks for you patience and I look forward to seeing many of you on
Saturday at the CMRG annual meeting.

Work Party to Fremont Peak

CMRG Members and Friends,

A work party to install the Automatic Transfer Switch and upgrade the repeater on Fremont Peak outside of Salida has been scheduled.

Date: Friday September 30 to Sunday October 2.

The Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) switches the building power from commercial power to a back up generator in the event of a commercial power outage on the mountain. Having this capability will keep the site and our customers on the air when the power goes out. The repeater upgrade is part of the steps needed to link the Salida repeater on 145.295 with the Cheyenne Mountain Repeater on 147.345 and eventually with Badger Mountain on 147.360.

Come for as many days as you can. If you can only make it one or two, that is fine. The conduit between the buildings has already been installed, but there is still a lot of work to do. Most of the work will be installing conduit inside the buildings and pulling wire. There will be some tower climbing involved as an antenna will be swapped out. If you have experience in electrical work, that will be a plus, but not required.

You will need to provide your own transportation to Salida. The travel time from Colorado Springs to Salida is about 2 hr 15 min. The road from Hwy 50 to the site is on an unimproved dirt road requiring 4 wheel drive and reasonable ground clearance. Work days will be long, but many hands can make the work go quicker. The initial plan is to leave Salida about 8am an return about 7pm.

I plan to drive to Salida Thursday night and stay in a motel Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

If you are interested, please contact me for more details. Feel free to invite other hams and friends.

The weather should be good. Looking forward to
