Default Repeaters to prog before Moab

What repeater freqs should I program into my radio before CM? I've got a couple of front range ones in there now but what ones along the I70 route should I add to the scan list?

And the Moab ones http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/foru...ead.php?t=9547 but last year I think they were both down, I don't remember anyone being able to hit either one.

THE RIFLE REPEATER (146.985) HAS BEEN PERMANENTLY REMOVED FROM THE SYSTEM DUE TO HIGH MAINTENANCE COST AND MINIMAL USAGE. LOOK FOR IMPROVED COVERAGE FROM GLENWOOD SPRINGS (146.850) IN THAT AREA.

Ah, that would explain why I have not been able to hit the Connection much west of Glenwood!

FWIW, We were going to be using a few from this site, I have permission from them to use it during CM.

http://www.ecso.com/sdarc.html http://www.ecso.com/sdarc/repeaters.html

We were trying to use a few of their repeaters, But the Moab repeater is a stand alone
However we thought one of these two will be good, We were actually able to raise a guy in Price while we were on the Over Nighter Pre-run

Bruin Point
Repeater Access Information
Repeater Callsign: K7SDC
Output Frequency: 147.320 MHz
Input Frequency: 147.920 MHz
Offset: +600 kHz
Status: Open
CTCSS: 88.5 Hz

Cedar Mountain
Repeater Access Information
Repeater Callsign: K7SDC
Output Frequency: 147.140 MHz
Input Frequency: 147.740 MHz
Offset: +600 kHz
Status: Open
CTCSS: None (Could be 88.5 Hz if needed)

Possibly...

Mount Ellen
Repeater Access Information
Repeater Callsign: K7SDC
Output Frequency: 147.080 MHz
Input Frequency: 147.680 MHz
Offset: +600 kHz
Status: Open
CTCSS: 136.5 Hz


I was going to try and set up a makeshift station with a J-pole on top of one of the hills in camp, So hopefully it will be workable.

So, if you're on the overnight trip and need to contact a flight for life, which repeater can you depend on to successfully communicate with? Years ago, on the Hole-In-The-Rock trip, we could hit the Navajo Mountain repeater and call for a flight for life from the hospital in Page, I think. The coverage map in your link was kind of difficult to read, but it looked like the Brian Point, Mt. Ellen, and the Cedar Mtn. repeaters may be difficult to hit from the trail. Has technology or updates in equipment improved since we were last in the area, 4 to 5 years ago?

Bruce, I will need to check my repeater booklet to be certain(marked it) But, Im fairly certain it was Bruin Point, That is one reason I mentioned that we raised a guy in Price, Castleview Hospital is there.
I will chat with Kurt Williams and Paul, Who actually made contact with the guy, My HT didnt have the power to reach him, I will be bringing my Icom 2200H for CM.
Is this info you guys may need, Or are you making sure we have it figured out, Just in case?
I will let you know either way.

Some of the Wasatch crew was able to communicate through a repeater in the area during the prerun. Vernon?? I think maybe?
