Welcome to RMHAM

We are a ham radio group that prides itself in finding new ways to advance the art and science of amateur radio across the States of Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming. We have technically skilled people in the business with several hundred years of combined knowledge on almost any topic you might encounter.

We enjoy many different and varied ham radio activities:

  • Contesting:  We’re avid VHF contesters but have many HF contesters and non-contesters on our rolls.  June VHF and Field Day are big events.
  • Construction:  Building new repeater facilities and microwave systems in Colorado and New Mexico
  • Repeaters:  We are constantly adding new repeaters to our  Colorado/New Mexico/Wyoming DMR system and developing our analog offerings
  • Microwave Linking:  We have designed and implemented a ‘co-op’ IP-based microwave network for linking and other applications that currently spans southern Wyoming all the way down to central New Mexico (with plans to expand further south to El Paso, Texas).  Installing and configuration of the Santa Fe, NM ARES city wide network as well as creating access nodes around the City allowing for remote connections via high speed point to multipoint links.   See Amateur Microwave Network in the menu above for more information.
  • Special projects:  Networking the RMHAM repeater network and creating a personnel RFID tracking system to support public service activities
  • Emergency Kits:  Development, Construction and Testing of Emergency Deployment Kits, WiFi, Microwave, IP phones, Radio caches, Interoperable equipment caches
  • Teaching:  Our team members are experts in their fields.  We use our knowledge to train all levels of hams.  See Rocky Mountain Ham University above.

We always need new skills to add to our professional toolbox, so if you have interest, we would love to have you come out to some of our events and join in.

We are not really the traditional “ham club” per se, we are a group of like-minded individuals that provide assistance where assistance is needed and requested.
