Alright, I'm all for switching.. missed you guys but did just speak with Dave who was down in Littleton, from up here in Broomfield land, seems to connect the front range quite well. For the record, 147.225 was way cleaner than 145.460.. I didn't realize the two were linked but I'll be camping on 147.225 for sure. monitoring..


BTW, there's a guy down the street with at least two antennas, has a stealth horizontal beam that's painted to match his trim and then he's got this really huge vertical beam in the back yard. I guess the covenants here are cool with that...

I need to make a cheat sheet for the dash board with all your call signs -- mine is way too easy not to recognize but CQing on FM simplex seems so foreign to me, especially without the reassuring squelch tail to tell me I'm getting out.
I have 6.46 simplex and the 5.46 machine plugged in to channel 1 and 2 of the dualbander and I listen a lot as I drive around. I'm contemplating installing the ancient FT-2400 just so I can keep the antenna farm on the Yakima rack growing.

Well, Dave was A BIG HELP as usual. Got the radio presets organized very nicely, and filled in quite a few knowledge gaps. Good to chat with Nak and Ricardo.

BTW, for the sake of us n00bs, beware abbreviations. It don't take much to lose us slow children.

When you say "linked", does that mean that conversations are "shared" across both repeaters? For example, if you are monitoring 147.225, and someone is broadcasting to 145.460, will you hear it?

Yes. Linked in the same way all the colorado connection repeaters are (145.310, etc.)

And Gavin and I sat on the couch last night and monitored that space shuttle launch, then about 15 minutes into orbit. That was super cool, and the guy who put it on said they've been doing that for 10+ years. It was fun to hear "real astronauts" on the radio.

That's also a downside to switching our default to this one, it being open IRLP it can and will be taken over by other people turning it onto something else, like monitoring the space shuttle. So we should consider 146.805 as a second choice, perhaps?

The only way to have a repeater all to ourselves is to build our own, but even then it would only be as private as our tone and offset, right? Still something I think we should do as a club though, would be so sweet for larger club runs & Cruise Moab.

What simplex frequencies are you guys running at Cruise Moab? I'll be down mid-day Thursday and would like to catch the tail end of the crews coming off the trail.

Eric, most of us will be on 146.460. It's our regular simplex chat. We usually try to chat from trail to trail. Last year, I was talking with guys on the Spike while I led Steel Bender.
