Welcome to the Upper Rio FM Society’s website!
April 12 General Meeting
The next general membership meeting is Tuesday April 12
The program will focus on the new linking system
March 22, 2016: Partial repairs on Capilla are complete. The 146.96 repeater is back on line but the antenna will not be at its original height until tower work is complete. Coverage may not be as complete as it was before the failure. The 145.010 packet node is also back on line. The 444.525 D-Star repeater remains off line. Many thinks Ronney Sluga, Paul Chock, and others for their hard work and generosity.
March 14, 2016: The antenna tower on Capilla peak has fallen down!!! The cause is still unknown. As a result the 146.96 repeater and the Capilla based D-Star repeater are both down until further notice.
March 14, 2016: Progress on the Hub Modernization Project continues. The new repeater hardware is online and the new linking system is being tested. More news soon.
February 27, 2016: The Hub Modernization Project progress continues. Go here for an update and more pictures.
November 26, 2015: Linking of the Upper Rio FM Society repeaters is currently disabled – but the repeaters may still be used in stand alone mode. Please see our Hub Modernization Project page for details of why linking is disabled and when the system will be fully operational again.
April 13, 2014: General membership meeting times have changed. The new meeting time is 6:30 PM. Location is unchanged. See the Meeting 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!
