Default Denver / Colorado Springs Repeater Reference List

I'm new to ham radio and want to program repeaters in my radio for wheeling outside the Denver / Colorado Springs area. Mostly, I'm looking for communications should something go wrong on the trail.

I've found many repeater lists online, but not sure which are best for communications when wheeling. If someone can direct me to a good reference for repeaters in Colorado that are useful for wheeling, then I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
Smitty

Hey Smitty, welcome to ham radio.

As you have probably figured out already, no repeater list is fully accurate. The one I use the most is Repeaterbook.com. It too has its flaws, but from my personal experience it has fewer inaccurate listings than most because users can send updates and corrections.

Beyond the world of lists, once you find a local repeater you can ask others on the air for repeater frequencies that meet your needs and coverage of the areas you'll be wheeling. Also, there is likely a local ham club(s) that can help out with the info. And lastly, while a given repeater may cover the area you're in, many repeaters are ghost towns - no one is ever around to respond, just something to be aware of in your travels (sometimes simplex on 146.520 may be your best bet).

73,
