Digi Update, Other News

Your editor apologizes for the lack of updates.  The NORMAN digi remains off the air.  During this hiatus, the Technical Committee is taking the opportunity to clean and test the equipment.  The digi will be off the air for some time, for reasons explained at the last club meeting. 

The antenna/feedline replacement project is proceeding.  We expect to have both the VHF and UHF antennas and their associated feedlines replaced before storm season peaks.  A new link to the Stadium Remote will also be installed.  This job will not be cheap, but we expect the upgrades to last for the next 20 years, weather permitting.

On a recent visit, settings were tweaked on the repeater in an attempt to prevent unannounced repeater time-outs.
