Default

I mostly ragchew on 449.450, which is a Rocky Mountain Radio League repeater. Often the default repeater is the Colorado Connection Repeaters, which is a state-wide system of linked together repeaters. The Denver machine is 145.310. Simplex is fine, but for VHF/UHF it's just so limited. I'll call out and even if half a dozen hams are on frequency, it's pretty unlikely I'll be able to hold a QSO with more than one, if that. Hams have put a lot of time and effort into building repeaters and put them up high on towers, they're there to use just have to get guys to get over the nerves. We have dozens to chose from and if you're just looking to chat we have an above average usage of them here in Denver.
