Dave what do the other southerners use? Specifically KD0MSP and W0AFA.. I hear them all the time and they're full quieting for the most part, you ever ask them? I know Anthony is in Castle Rock so not so far down but AFA is certainly in the Springs.. and he's mobile too I know you've heard him.
also I thought there was a better way to hit the Connection from the Springs than the .310, but don't remember (and yes too lazy to look it up) but my suggestion is ask some of the other guys what rigs they're running, and if they're on 145.310 or something else. hth!
