Split Bands, Repeaters and Midland

So I was traveling in the Denver area yesterday and came up a repeater channel that had a really active club use and really impressive range. In looking it up, I see that it uses a split band and that Midlands can’t be programmed for split bands. I’d like to ask for permission to use the repeater, but if I understand it right, as I have a Midland Micromobile, I’m flat out of luck. Correct?

Yeah, pretty much. One of the awkward limitations of the midland micro mobile radios.
