… and in the Rockies

ARDC is also providing a major grant, of nearly $375,000, to Rocky Mountain Ham Radio for the expansion of its multistate 5-GHz microwave network. The grant will enable the group to add nearly 40 new microwave sites and 35 point-to-point RF links in Colorado and New Mexico, providing linked repeater coverage along major travel corridors. 

According to the ARRL Letter, plans also call for the addition of seven new digital voice repeaters across New Mexico, as well upgrading the group's communication trailer in Colorado and setting up an additional trailer for use in New Mexico.
