    I just passed my Tech exam this morning, and I want to make sure I buy something that will work with the local infrastructure near Telluride, CO. What are the commonly used protocols in the area? APRS, DStar, DMR, etc.? I assume 70cm and 2m are the most popular? What do you suggest? I currently live in San Diego, CA.


    • Hi Adam. The infrastructure around here supports FM voice, APRS, and Packet, though there’s very little activity using digital techniques. Repeater listings on the Internet may be out of date or just plain wrong. The listing on this page has not been verified in a long time. Because of the mountains, we’ve found that those in Telluride who wish to connect to the Montrose area often have to do it on HF NVIS on 80 meters. There’s no direct repeater connectivity from Telluride into the Montrose area, though there’s a new repeater on the Uncompahgre Plateau that may help. Sorry to be so vague, but I don’t have a good answer for you. 73, Dave, KEØOG, Webmaster.

    Hey Dave(?). w0dbb here.

    It’d be nice if the western slope repeater list had lat/long coordinates listed.

    Is there a webpage that has that?

    I have 3 questions:
    1. For DMR1 is the talk group 99,the time slot 1, and the color code 1?
    2. Is the Gunnison repeater on 147.120 still on the air?
    3. Is there an active repeater on Water Dog with an output on 448.825 with a PL of 100.0?

    Your frequency list is very helpful. Thank you
