Intermountain Intertie System


The Intermountain Intertie System is a network of linked repeaters located in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Arizona.  The network is comprised of club and privately owned repeaters linked together to provide long distance communications.  It is partially supported by the Utah VHF Society.  The following repeaters are normally linked into the system.  Because of the large geographic area covered, it is suggested that stations limit their contacts to 10 minutes allowing others to use the system.  All repeaters in the linked system that require a PL are using 100.0 Hz with the exception of Levan Peak which is 103.5




Notice:  The tower on Frisco Peak that went down in January was placed back in service on June 5, 2017.  All of the links are fully functional.  The Bear Lake site that also had a tower go down has been restored to temporary service.  A new tower will be erected at that site this summer.

* Links into Arizona:  Near the end of September, 2013 additional linking equipment was installed at the Navajo Mountain site to permit connectivity of the Intermountain Intertie to the ARA (Arizona Repeater Association) system on Mount Elden, North of Flagstaff. On Mount Elden, the 448.875- (PL100.0) is Linked to the Utah Intertie full time. To reach the larger part of Arizona, an on demand link is provided to connect the Utah Intertie link to the Rimlink System (which covers about 50% of Arizona, including Phoenix) The interconnection of these to systems can be control by users on either side. Users may interconnect the systems using the control code of "##360" and may drop the link using the control code of "##370". The ARA encourages users to talk to their friends in Arizona, or just make some new Arizona friends. For more information about the ARA and the coverage of their systems, go to their web page: http://w7ara.org       

** This repeater can be connected to the Intermountain Intertie.
