6/4/2014 - News from the Skyline Radio Club Meeting held June 2, 2014
The Hells Kitchen Endurance Horse race, North of
Gunnison was completed with help from several club members. Check points were
manned by radio operators and all racers were accounted for. Thanks to those
The 146.660 repeater has been turned back on and seems to be working normal.
It was turned off for much of the winter due to a temperature caused problem
with the receiver. A remote base was operating in Manti to provide system
access on the 146.660 frequency.
We plan on replacing the 30+ year old 146.660 GE repeater with a much newer
Kenwood repeater this summer as soon as access allows.

10/23/2013 – Barry
Bradley-WB7RELhas let us know that if
you are traveling I-15 (or anywhere in range) that the Beesting
Repeater, 449.300 pl 88.5hz, is listening on the National Simplex call
channel, 146.520 mhz. This enables travelers
and/or local operators to have expanded communication on the VHF call channel
via this UHF repeater. I always recommend having the 146.520 channel
programmed into your radios and part of your scanning list. You can see
a map of the potential coverage areahere.Thanks Barry!
