Sandia Crest Repeater and Site

The Sandia Crest UHF repeater is located at an elevation of 10,200 feet and is just East of Albuquerque. Coverage is excellent in almost all directions from Grants to East of Santa Rosa along I40, from Santa Fe to Soccoro on I25. The towns of Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Socorro, Las Lunas, Grants, Belen, and much more in Central New Mexico. The antenna is a DB Products Omni Directional Dual Antenna with 5db gain at the top of the 50 foot tower. The repeater is a Hytera RD985 Digital (DMR) dual mix radio that is also available with Analog. The site is difficult to get to in the winter, with 5 feet of snow on the ground is very common, so reliability is the goal. More information about our Digital repeaters can be found on DMR Montana.
