Hey, all you HAMS.
I have several trips on the books and i was looking to find some repeater freq for a few of the areas i plan on going.
This wkend we will be in Boulder to do some multipitch
Next wkend we will be trying the NorthSide of Mnt. Sneffels
And next month we will be in the Towers area of the Wind Rivers.
Thanks for your help; i know there is a book you can buy but i'm trying to save some $ or our trips.

It's going to be very difficult to get all the beta you need for routes without guide books. I would suggest stopping by the American Alpine Club Library in Golden and photo copy the pages in the guides. What grades are you looking for? Steven Lucarelli

I'm sorry, i guess i'm not being clear in my post. First, I'm looking for amature radio operators and the freq they use with their transcievers, when in the areas i wrote about in the last post. I'm a member of Garfield county SAR and we use repeaters to talk to each other and Emergeny personal. I like to carry my radio i case of trouble or if others in the area are having emergencies.
I have already picked out the routes i want to do, but sorry for the confusion. HAMS are getting rare out there but maybe there are some SAR members on this site. I'm looking for repeaters and freq and offsets, and tones, if needed. Thanks again, EdwardWalker

Also:

w0cra.org/ (has an autopatch for members)

The Colorado connection links the whole state. The coverage map is here:

Good to see another Ham/climber. I wish more climbers and backcountry users carried HTs.

Hamming is cool. But, as a former rescue dude, I can say I'd rather not have HAM radio disrupting my blissful wilderness 'xperience. HAMS are definitely useful though. Have fun and be safe. :0) Tradsplatter

I leave my radio off about 99.9% of the time. Sometimes I'll check to see if I can reach a repeater from a new area, but that takes about 30 seconds. Then the radio is back in the pack. I usually bring my cell phone, but I keep it turned off.

I'm pro peace'n'quiet too.
