Repeaters picture
The WDK BARC repeater site is at the NCAR/UCAR
Mesa Labs facility on Table Mesa, near Boulder, CO

Our 2-meter and 70 cm repeaters are located high in the foothills of the Rockies (6,185 feet above sea level), housed in the NCAR/UCAR facility on Table Mesa.

The 146.700(-) and 448.900(-) MHz with a 100 Hz PL Tone WDK repeaters can be accessed from the Wyoming border in the north, to Monument Hill (near Colorado Springs) in the south. Coverage is primarily to the east of the Rockies Front Range, as the repeater signal is blocked to the west by mountain peaks with altitudes of over 14,000 feet.

The repeaters are maintained by a small group of dedicated volunteers. If you need to report any performance or operational problems, please send a kindly worded email as follows:

Please realize that none of the repeater team volunteers live or work in close proximity to the repeater, and access has to be prearranged. If your issue is affecting actual emergency communications and requires immediate attention, please contact one of the Board members who all have our personal phone numbers.

BARC's own IRLP node # 7007 on 146.610 (-) (100 Hz tone) repeater


The aim of the IRLP project is to reliably and inexpensively link amateur radio systems without the use of RF links, leased lines, or satellites.

The IRLP uses Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) custom software and hardware. Coupled with the power of the Internet, IRLP links our BARC 146.610(-) 100 Hz tone repeater to the world.

IRLP operates a network of dedicated servers and nodes offering very stable worldwide voice communications between hundreds of towns and cities. All this with unsurpassed uptimes and the full dynamic range of telephone quality audio.
