Alpine 725 – Now Online!

November 13 & 14, 2021

Summary

This past weekend a group from Tucson GMRS spent the weekend in Alpine, AZ. The crew performed much needed site maintenance and installed a new repeater. The repeater is located on South Mountain at just over 9500’. This site not only has a great view but should provide great coverage in East Central Arizona and well into western New Mexico. Thanks to Matt for allowing us the use his site. Special Thanks to Scott K7SRS of Alpine and Will from Gila Broadband for assistance with the work on the mountain. If you’re in the area give it a try. Programming info is available on the SWCRS website: Click Here
