Get it installed! I'll have the radio on for the drive home, about 5:30PM today. From Frisco you might be able to get into the Colorado Connection repeater in Vail at 147.345 MHz (+600KHz offset), PL tone 123.0. Seriously, I'll keep the Denver CCR on and listen for you. The Breckenridge CCR repeater seems to be offline AFAIK. But that one is at 146.790 MHz (-600 KHz offset), PL tone 123.0 just in case. I know you can get into the Breck CCR repeater from Frisco.

BTW, the Colorado Connection is a state-wide system of linked repeaters. Talk into one and you get repeated on all dozen or so of them all around the state.

I'll have the radio on this afternoon too, 5:30-6:30ish.. will monitor .310 and .145, Dave hit me on one of those and we can QSY elsewhere.. Corbet here are all the repeaters http://www.colcon.org/repeaters.html, too bad that Breck one says it's down, because that one worked well last summer on the Ghost Town run..

Chances are very slim to none that it will be up and running by tonight. I plan to do the remote mount above the rear view. I don't have the parts for that yet. Plus it looks like I'll need an extension for the antenna cable.
