    I am heading out this coming week on a road trip that will begen in Los Angeles and end in Colorado Springs, CO. I will be taking I-15 up through NV an UT and then jumping onto I-70 in UT and taking that all they way into the Denver area.

    Does anyone know of the what repeaters are live along that route?

    Thanks for the help!

    Here are some possible freqs when you pass thru Grand Junction Co. I am shielded from JCT so am not
    real familiar with their use. The new Raspberry machine near Montrose gets into JCT and needs pl.
    the 447.2 here is linked to several others but I don't know the best input in JCT.

    I am great.
    There is a highly linked set "Colorado Connection" in JCT but I can't reach it.
    Very little UHF/VHF activity around here.

    The best thing to do is to download the free "Repeater Book" app it is better than the ARRL book and more up todate and Free

    And if you activate the location settings on your smart phone, the Repeater Book app will tell you what repeaters you are near. Plus distance from and direction from.

    I travel I-15 from Southern Calif to Northern Utah quite often. I tried The Intermountain Intertie, so far I could not able to talk to anyone yet. repeaters are not active.
    however, I was able to QSO many times on 146.520 MHz simplex.
    also, when weather are bad such as snow storm or bad accidents, CB radio are quite useful , listen to CH 19 , you can get a lot of information about weather condition on mountain pass, so on. there are many mountain pass along I-15 in southern Utah , where I saw quite heavy snow.
    so my suggestion is also carry CB radio.

    Watch out for wildfires! An interesting place to make a quick stop would be Goblin Valley, a bit south of I-70 in Utah.
