The 147.345 Mhz repeater resides several miles northwest of the town of Vail. At an elevation of about 9500 feet, coverage is available from Vail Pass to Glenwood Canyon and the Flattops Wilderness to Tennessee Pass.

Our thanks to Richard (WAØZLY) for donating the use of this site.

This repeater is a Kenwood TKR-750 with a six cavity WACOM duplexer and DB224 antenna. The link is provided by Rocky Mountain Ham Radio and is directly on the backbone linking directly from Leadville to Castle Peak!

The site is accessible via an ugly 4WD road from late spring through early fall as long as it’s not wet.
