|Waterdog||Waterdog peak (part of linked GMRA system)||447.200-||107.2|
- Waterdog repeater is part of a linked system and is generally used only for emergency services. Al, WA4HND, in Grand Junction, notes that we can use the repeater for perhaps five minutes before transitioning to another frequency. Always check to see that the repeater isn’t in use for an emergency. (“This is KEØOG. Is this repeater being used?”) The reason is that often during search and rescue or other operations, the repeater is silent, sometimes for minutes at a time.
- Montrose and Cedaredge repeaters can be used for ragchewing.
- I have a radio tuned to the Montrose repeater 24×7 and will hear a call if I’m in the study at the time, usually in the evenings or on Friday or on weekends (sporadic)
