These repeaters and the packet gateway (2M side) can be used by all hams with Technician class and above licenses.


They are located west of Denver in Lakewood, providing local metropolitan area coverage -
however, they are not wide area repeaters.

And, remember that our wide area repeater on Squaw Mountain, 449.350, is also an EchoLink® station, number 4140.
Call your out of town ham friends, or have them call you by connecting through their local EchoLink® station or their PC.
