The Colorado Council of Amateur Radio Clubs handles amateur radio repeater and auxiliary link coordination within the State of Colorado based on policies set forth by the Delegates of the CCARC. The policies of the group are documented in the following document – CCARC Frequency Coordination Policies – Update 10/20/2012
Special Note: As of fall of 2016, there is a waitlist for 2M and 70cm coordinations along the Front Range from Fort Collins to Pueblo. The wait period could be as long as 5 years for 70cm and 5+ years for 2m. All other bands are open and available for coordination immediately. Narrowband coordinations are given preference. Yaesu Fusion is not considered narrowband and must be coordinated on wideband pairs due to the switchability of the system.
Online RSE Form – The CCARC has implemented a streamlined online RSE Form to allow for the CCARC to move into electronic coordination. This form must be filled out in entirety to be submitted. Required information is noted with a red star. You will receive a submission confirmation email if successful. There is no way to save your work, and it must be completed in it’s entirety to be submitted.
Repeater System Evaluation (RSE) form – Revised 11/14 – Use this form to apply for a new repeater or make changes to an existing coordination. Forms must be filled out in it’s entirety, with valid site and radio and antenna information to be acceptable for coordination. Without site information or a fully completed form, the coordination will be rejected. When in doubt, don’t leave any blanks on the form. Contact the coordinator for more information. Use the handy form below to contact the coordinator.
