IRG Supports Brighton CERT on 145.475

The Brighton CERT amateur radio team will be using the 145.475 repeater for scheduled training and community events, and for emergency response.

Mt. Evans Ascent Coming up on June 8th

Coming up on June 8th 2019, Intermountain Repeater Group will be providing communication support for the Mt. Evans Ascent foot race, benefitting Alpine Rescue. The race itself starts at 6:30 AM, so amateur operators will need to be leaving the start line prior to that. Please contact KEØSJ — Bob, our club President, if you would like to volunteer to help out. Bob will be sending out information via e-mail to our radio crew as we get closer to the event. Radio amateurs will be operating from the start line, the summit, and at the aid stations along the course, relaying requests for support, race progress, and any other communication traffic as needed.
