You may experience interference on the Metro 600 repeater during the current cold spell. This is an ongoing issue unrelated to our equipment, and created by something unknown nearby that spins up when temperatures drop.
These repeaters are available for Free access to anyone with a valid GMRS license. Sign Up for more information.
This repeater is located near Mount Bailey and has Highway 285 coverage from approx. Grant to Conifer and into the Pike National Forest.
Commercial-grade Kenwood TKR-850 on battery back-up.
Located in Northglenn near 102nd Ave and Ura Lane, this repeater provides excellent metro area coverage for both mobile and handheld radios. It also provides excellent mobile coverage on I-70 from the Central City Parkway on the west, to Strasburg on the east, and very good mobile coverage up some of the canyon roads west of Golden/Denver. It is common courtesy to state what repeater you are using, such as "WQUX891 monitoring on Metro 600" so people scanning know what channel to reply on.
Lookout 675 (Linked to Southwest Community Radio System)
Located on Lookout Mountain, this repeater has a 10.2 dB high-gain Yagi antenna pointed east and has strong coverage along the metro corridor.
This repeater is linked to the Southwest Community Radio System covering Denver, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Tucson, Phoenix, and points between. This is a way to get to know and converse with fellow GMRS users out of state. It may help to spur conversation if you give your location, such as "WQUX891 monitoring in Denver." It is not necessary to state that you are on "Lookout 675," as people on the links will likely not know what you mean. Please wait for the courtesy tone and leave at least two seconds between transmissions so the linked system can turn around the transmission. Keying too quickly can lock up the links.
If you connect with someone local on this frequency, please move the conversation to a local repeater.
It is considered bad radio etiquette to tie up a linked repeater system with local only traffic. You can tell someone is local if you hear a courtesy tone after their transmission; linked traffic does not have a courtesy tone. Please use all callsign requirements and customs and courtesies when on this or any of our repeaters.

700 Paired Repeaters
This is a two-repeater system sharing the same frequency; one on the north end of the metro area and one on the south. This configuration provides for increased portable radio coverage in the metro area. The 700 North repeater has a courtesy tone and the 700 South repeater does not. This allows you to know which repeater someone is talking on if they do not specify. You don't have to use the same repeater if all parties can hear each other! This allows someone to choose which repeater works best for the area they are in. It is common courtesy to state what repeater you are using, such as "WQUX891 monitoring on 700 South" so people scanning know what channel to reply on.

Brand New Repeater currently in test mode. Feel free to use it as you would others but understand that it is still being tuned and adjustments and other changes may be likely. If you're out and about, comparison between 600 and 725 are a helpful test for us!
