The Mega-Link repeater system is provided and maintained as a public service by (WA5IHL) Paul Choc and associates. The Mega-Link repeater network covers a major portion of the State of New Mexico as well as portions of six surrounding states.
The Mega-Link system consists of 35 repeaters. The repeaters are “hard-linked”, so that a contact made with one of the repeaters, is heard on all 35 repeaters in the system. One should wait to talk approximately 1 to 2 seconds from the time you push the mic button. This gives the system the time it needs to link all machines.
The Mega-Link is essentially one repeater with a huge area of coverage. The Mega-Link provides the Upper Rio FM Society, Inc. access to the system for the Upper Rio autopatch facility. (Full Members Only) It also allows them to link the Mega-Link to URFMSI repeaters and vice verse.
