I guess civilian radios are an option but obviously a working military radio network would be optimal, although apparently not very possible.
Well comms in Colorado could be the Green Pine UHF communications system, or AN/FRC-117 Survivable Low Frequency Communications System (SLFCS) which uses UHF and VLF both are part of the Post-Attack Command and Control System.

There is also AN/URC-117 Ground Wave Emergency Network, which also could be used although this was network was cancelled in 1994, 58 towers where built and more could built at the start of the Twilight war.

There are also several organizations that could help out the military with overseas communications they are:

Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service(RACES)
American Radio Relay League (ARRL)
Military Auxiliary Radio System (MARS)

Also your idea of launching some small comms satellites, is something the USAF had in their AN/DRC-8 Emergency Rocket Communications System although is was canceled in 1991, it might be modified and used in 2000/01 if the USAF has any Minuteman II left
