Welcome to the Upper Rio FM Society’s website!
The mission of the Upper Rio FM Society, Inc. is to provide a State-of-the-Art
Amateur Radio repeater network for the benefit of our members, licensed Amateur Radio
operators, the community and provide public service communication support in times of emergency.
12/10/2018 – Power outage at the HUB
The HUB is currently without power and may be without power until December 19. This is due to a major electrical upgrade on the Air Force base.
The ’90 repeater, the ’55 repeater, the D-Star repeaters (K5UUR-B and K5UUR-C) and the APRS iGate will be off the air during this time.
Remote repeaters will continue to operate in stand alone mode but linking will not be possible.
We will be issuing more info via the newsletter distribution list soon. Check back here for updates.
12/2/2018 – Capilla Repeater (.96) Update
The Upper Rio FM Society Technical Team has repaired the Capilla site and the repeater is once again operational. However, the last bit of work — installing antennas — was completed on Saturday December 1. Due to very cold temperatures and strong winds the tower crew was only able to install the antenna at approximately 20 feet above ground level. This means the repeaters reach will be somewhat limited until the weather clears and the Technical Team is able to move the antenna to the top of the tower.

The Upper Rio FM Society
The Upper Rio FM Society started its journey as a club in 1968 with the help of eleven enthusiastic Hams interested in advancing the use of the two-meter band. Today, the organization boasts nine linkable 2-meter and 70-centimeter repeaters (two of which are D-Star digital repeaters). The linking system also has access to over 40 additional 2-meter and 70-centimeter repeaters located around New Mexico that make up the Mega-Link and other affiliated systems.
Whether you are a new or experienced Ham, an existing URFMSI member or someone who is interested in joining our organization, we hope that this website is useful. Enjoy, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with your comments or questions!
