[ News From The Tech Committee ]

The Usery 448.275 machine is offline and the Stone Castle 448.600 is back online. The Tech Committee moved the Usery 448.275 machine and changed the frequencies so it can stand in until they can figure out the problem. Stone Castle repeater has intermittent periods of full power, but most of the time is only running about 250mw. They do not suspect blown finals at this time, since we occasionally see full power TX. Dan has repeater in his possession and will reach out to BroadComm on Monday. Thanks to Dennis, Steve1 and Neil for coming out and helping today....
