Current and Past Newsletters
Several people have asked about the process to register with the D-STAR network. Registration is easy and only needs to be done once — even if you move to another state, get new radios, etc. See the August 16, 2012 update on the digital repeater page for more info.
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.
