Well for our purposes we don't need any IRLP or Autopatch, we just want to promote radio use and help others gain experience transmitting, get more comfortable with the technology, etc. Plus have daily discussions about starter contacts, 90915-20004 oil filters, and IFS vs. SFA.
I for one don't need to be heard across the front range, or across the I-70 corridor for that matter, so yeah a less capable and lesser known repeater sounds good to me.. you pick!
