A crack team of 15 RMHAM team members pulled off another 3 site day interconnecting the RMHAM network to Leadville and Vail.  This push gets DMR into these areas that have not been covered with DMR until now.  We now cover I-70 nearly contiguously from Genoa through Avon.  We installed two microwave hops from our Fairplay site to our Leadville and then over to Vail with three dedicated teams.  By noon on September 30, 2017, the DMR systems were in place and ready to carry traffic.  We also added new digital linking for the Colorado Connection and upgraded both the Leadville and Vail repeaters to new digital hardware!  Ski Country ARC from the Vail area assisted the Vail RMHAM team in completing this task.  Fairplay team of K0JSC, N2MED, K0GUR got the microwave in and peaked.  Leadville team of W0VG, AC0KQ, AE5IT, N0DEV, K0IBM, K7AIH.  Vail team was K2AD, WA1JHK, KI0KN, N7CTM with prework by W0KU.  Ski Country folks that helped out KD0MA, KE0JEG and N0ECT.  They installed microwave, power, routers, and all assorted cabling along with doing lots of antenna rework to handle the new configuration.
