I can get into the CCon repeater here in boulder but once I open it up it is only scratchyness that get's through. The folks at HRO told me about another antenna near Jeffco airport that takes a different tone to get into. I am going to try that next. I think I am in some sort of funky "shadow" here in boulder.
Hey that's a good point.. I think it's still 145.310 but you're at 107hz instead of 123hz? I can't remember, but if you listen on one of the 7:30 nets they'll probably say.

edit: ok Dave is faster, and probably righter.
