AE6KE repeater is working fine.
After investigating the status of AB6VS repeater, it was discovered that a mouse got inside the VXR-7000 unit and chewed through 3 critical wiring harnesses. 2 replacement harnesses have been located and the 3rd harness will need to be rebuilt from scratch. The projected repair cost is $295.00. Currently the lead time for the parts to rebuild the 3rd wiring harness is not known. The unit is with Red Dog Radios in Louisville, CO.
At some point in the future the AB6VS repeater will be renamed to AB6VU – everyone will need to reprogram this repeater into their amateur radios. More information to come.
