Mega-Link amateur radio network

Don and others,

NM is blessed with an excellent network of more than 2 dozen repeaters called the Mega-Link system. This system covers the majority of the state of NM and portions of neighboring states.

Even before entering NM, you should be able to connect to Deza Bluff, then near Grants you have the San Mateo repeater and in ABQ there is Sandia Crest repeater at 145.290-(100).

Check this link for locations and frequencies;

Margarita hour is 6:00 AM and 4:00 PM - and anytime before or after those times....

We have one major pot luck planned for sure on Sat evening - then other meals we are going to kinda ad lib - - - - having said that, I think we kinda decided to do a community grilling where everyone brings a meat to grill and then the rest of meal is on your own. So lots of time to go out and eat if you wish to do that.

Check International Balloon Festival in Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada. Beautiful scenery, friendly people, no need to post safety warnings. Lost wallets, purses, cameras etc. are always turned in to police intact. Amazing venue, where farmers in most instances, do not charge landing fees. Vintage car show included on last day. If you are a serious enthusiast, you need to look into this.

Page and I will meet you in Grants. We're knocking around in Utah at the moment, then will go to Monument Valley. Not sure after that.

I'm enjoying the updates as I find a connection.

I've been trying to get Page to release her hold on the ham. So far it's safe, so far.

I did get a spare bottle of scotch, though. Count your victories where you can.

It has been a great 7 months or so, getting ready for this trip. We're having a great time, so far...

Pa
