Metro 600

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.

Tuesday 7:25 on the 725
Tuesdays Nights at 7:25 PM

The Tuesday night "7:25 on the 725" net is also linked to the Metro 600 repeater. If you check-in to the net and are told you have a poor signal, try switching to the opposite repeater and seeing if your signal improves. The Metro 600 and Mesta 725 repeaters are linked on Net nights from 7:15 PM to 8:30 PM.





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.

To access the linked repeater system via Zello, please visit the website below:

SWCRS Tech Net
Wednesday at 8:00 PM

Held Wednesdays, bring whatever radio related questions you might have for the net. The format of this net is back and forth, with the NCO calling for questions and then delegating them to folks on the air to chime in on. Like the Southwest Regional Net, this net opens with a portion for announcements relevant to the system or local area.


Southwest Regional Net
Sundays at 5 PM Mountain - Early Check-In at 4:30 PM

Join people from all over the Southwest Regional Repeater system in this fun get together.

The "roll call" list you hear is built from the previous week's check-ins. If you are not currently on the list, there is an opportunity to check-in for the first time after the roll-call is complete; you will then be added to the roll for the following week. Because the list is growing fast and we only have an hour to check people in, if you don't check-in for three weeks after being added, your name will be dropped from the roll. You can always be added back to the roll call later by waiting until new member check-ins are called. If you want to check-in but don't want to participate in the weekly net topic, you can check-in before the net begins at 4:30 PM. You will count as a check-in and not be called on during the regular roll call.





Buckhorn 700 (Extreme wide-area coverage)

This powerhouse repeater is located on Buckhorn Mountain in Larimer County west of Fort Collins and is expected to offer coverage from southern Wyoming all the way to the southern Denver Metro area and east to Brush on I-76 and Agate on I-70! Please note, we have taken "700 North" off the air and moved its equipment to Buckhorn Mountain. 700 South will remain on the air for a little longer with its current codes, as we are testing to see if the two sites will interfere with each other over 70 miles away.
