The Mestaa’ėhehe (pronounced mess-taw-HAY, formerly Squaw Mountain) site was the CRA's second site to be developed.
Mestaa’ėhehe Mountain is located 20 miles west of Denver at an elevation of 11,440 feet with wide-area coverage including the I-70 corridor to the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnels. If you are currently using another Mestaa’ėhehe Mountain repeater due to your location or inability to access one of our other repeaters, you should be able to use the 145.145 or 447.575 repeaters.
The club leases facilities from the Mestaa’ėhehe Mountain site owner. Due to technical advances and a dedication to be one of the premier front range repeater sites, our landlord requires all amateur two-meter repeaters located on Mestaa’ėhehe Mountain use the same transmit and receive antennas. This means that all two-meter amateur repeaters located on Mestaa’ėhehe Mountain have virtually the same coverage.
This site is only accessible by snowcat, snowmobile, snowshoes, etc., during the winter months.
