A new repeater joins the ranks of repeaters on the Western Slope. It’s located at a place called Raspberry on the Uncompahgre Plateau and has good coverage into Montrose and also the “West End” of Montrose County (Nucla, Naturita). Some users report there is coverage here and there in Utah.
The repeater is at 146.910 MHz, negative offset, and requires a 107.2 Hz tone. The repeater is open to all use, but emergency communications have priority.
Coverage is spotty on Log Hill. However, Log Hill hams may find that the Montrose Flat Top repeater (146.79, negative offset, 107.2 Hz tone) is easy to hit. Coverage is also to be found in in parts of Delta, Ouray, and Mesa Counties.
The Montrose Amateur Radio Club does not own, operate, or control any repeaters. Club members and other amateurs in the area use and enjoy several local repeaters.
