AE6KE - wonderful
AB6VS – do not use
440cm controller went out and does not detect pl.
The Fix: pl controller needs to be built and installed.
Noone has time and energy to do this, so just use AE6KE.
Needs a full reinstall, refurb, take repeater and controller to Austin’s house.
Note to net controllers:
Use AE6KE. Announce on AB6VS that you are not broadcasting there and that you will be on the other, since they cannot be linked at the moment.
KC6TYG -Off the air
Needs to be on 24 hour timer so it turns off once a day, 5 mins of interruption will cure it.
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.
Kathi will forward Alex’s email to Austin.
