REPEATER

The repeater stack is installed at its permanent home at Mt. Thorodin. Our tests indicate that coverage extends from the North border down through Douglas County to the top of Monument Hill.

The gateway provides access to other D-STAR repeaters, but if you are only interested in talking to people locally, you can skip that step.

Detailed gateway registration information is available in this D-STAR Registration document in pdf format provided by Barry Wilson, KA0BBQ.

To register with the gateway, go to the Colorado D-STAR Gateway. NOTE that this is a secure site (https) and when you go there your browser will complain that it is going to an insecure site, because the system (as designed by Icom) uses a self-signed SSL key for the encryption. You may continue into the site with confidence.

Click the Register button and input your information. You will receive an e-mail with further instructions.
