The RMRL is a Denver-based amateur radio club that offers a full array of ham radio operating modes: VHF, UHF, analog and digital repeater operations, and multiple Internet connectivity modes including IRLP, Echolink, and DMR via the Brandmeister network. We are affiliated with the American Radio Relay League.
We welcome everyone with an interest in any facet of ham radio to come and join us for the fun!
Members are located up and down the Front Range from Cheyenne to Colorado Springs, and membership fluctuates around 250. Activities include furnishing communications coverage for civic events, emergencies, and a severe storm warning network to assist the National Weather Service. Social events include a holiday dinner each year. The RMRL is a ham radio club for everyone.
The club was organized in the late 1960’s and has provided repeater service to the Front Range of Colorado since. The RMRL’s flagship 2-meter repeater on 146.94 MHz has been in continuous operation from its present location on Squaw Mountain (11,440′ MSL) for over 40 years.
