2m grudge terrible noise seems to be gone now.
440cm controller went out and does not detect pl. David did some troubleshooting. Austin will take the controller to his house to further test.
Note to net controllers:
Announce on the one you are not broadcasting on that you will be on the other, since they cannot be linked at the moment.
This is still in the works:
Bill is working with Alex and Kathi to program the FT-8500 that resides at LPFR. LPFR will need to purchase the software (approx $25) so he can load the local frequencies on that radio).
Austin has approval from LPFR (is this correct?) to secure an antenna that will work on both 2m and 44cm repeaters.
Does he also need a cable? He will check with Alex.
