Default Wyoming repeaters

A few of us on the Outlaws Run will have HAM on board and I was wondering if anyone knows of a good resource to locate repeaters along our route. We'll be running between Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado., Rock Springs and Kaycee in Wyoming. I found a bunch of random stuff online, but was wondering if anyone had any specifics on what we might try to hit. Thanks!

Martin,

You can borrow my ARRL repeater guide if you want to.

Thanks Jeff. I guess it's as good a time as any to buy one.

I have one from 2004-2005, but they are usually accurate enough for a few years. They are worth the price for convenience and accuracy. From memory there are CCR repeaters in Laramie, Steamboat and Craig. The one in Craig you can usually get along US40 near Dinosaur on the Colorado side but lose when you drop down into the Yampa valley. There is a GP open repeater in Steamboat I'm pretty sure. There are a handful of open GP repeaters in Rock Springs and one you can usually hear from Vernal throughout Dinosaur and almost up to the Flaming Gorge.

I saw Seans email about putting a list together. That will be great.

The most difficult thing is just getting the repeaters programmed into your radio correctly, which really isn't too difficult. I'm going to get some programmed asap before the run. Once they're in, it works just like simplex, except you need to listen more for others using it, and there's a morse code tail when you transmit.

Maybe Dave can explain how to use them better than me. I can fumble my way through but not well enough to explain it...

here are the Wyoming repeaters out of the 09-10 repeater book.
