Lookout Pass Repeater and Site

The Lookout Pass UHF repeater is located at an elevation of 6,060 feet on the Mullan Pass/Lookout Pass Mountain ridge right on the Idaho and Montana border just north of Interstate 90. Coverage is very good in almost all directions from Washington to Missoula, with mobile coverage in Spokane, Washington. The antennas are Celwave PD-1151 Station Masters with 8db gain at the top of the 40 foot tower. The repeater is a Motorola SLR5700 (DMR) Digital Mobile Radio. The repeater operates on a frequency of 449.2 input and 444.2 output and requires Color Code 2 for Digital Use only. In order to use the Brandmeister Worldwide DMR Network, we are using a Cisco Wireless Router using Verizon Wireless for our Internet. The site is difficult to get to in the winter, with 8 feet of snow on the ground is very common, so reliability is the goal. Additionally as a service for Amateur operators so equipped, a 25 watt APRS Digi-peater ("LOOKOT") is operating at the site. More information about our Digital Repeaters can be found on DMR Montana.
