RMRL Repeaters

SquawTwr3

The Rocky Mountain Radio League, Inc. owns and operates eight repeaters at sites along the Front Range of Colorado to serve its membership. All of the analog repeaters are based on a standard design employing General Electric MASTR II exciters, power amplifiers, and receivers, and S-COM Industries controllers. The design allows components to be exchanged between repeaters and a spare inventory the club maintains. A defective component can be easily ‘swapped out’, minimizing repeater downtime and eliminating the need for on-site repairs under adverse conditions.

Certain of the RMRL repeaters offer special features. The 145.340 machine is a node in the Internet Radio Linking Project (IRLP) network. This repeater can be linked to other repeaters around the world via the Internet. (See the Internet Connection page.) The 449.825 repeater is linked full time to the 146.940 machine, extending its coverage into Boulder and other “shadowed” areas.

ALL RMRL repeaters require a 103.5 Hz CTCSS tone for access. The repeaters also transmit either a 103.5 Hz or a 127.3 Hz CTCSS tone. If your receiver has CTCSS decode, you can utilize this feature to reduce intermod and noise between repeater transmissions.

The 145.220 and 224.000 MHz repeaters have autopatch capability which supports long tone zero (LiTZ) emergency calling. The telephone line is shared between the two repeaters and may be in use at any given time. If you attempt to dial a number while the line is in use, the repeater will transmit ‘BZ’ (busy) in Morse code.

The RMRL has a crossband repeater regularly flown by the Edge of Space Sciences group.
