Repeaters And Cold Weather

Today it was discovered that out 146.7 MHz repeater was transmitting with a very low output power. Upon replacing the repeater with one of the backups, it was determined that it was not operating correctly either. Now the repeater is operating on a second backup until the mail repeater is back in operation. I spoke briefly with W5QO on the phone and he has one of them fixed so far. He is currently troubleshooting the second repeater.

Hopefully soon the main repeater will be back on the air in full operation. One of the issues with changing the repeaters out is that the audio levels need readjusting due to the different load characteristics.

I will try to give a better update as I have time. I am posting this from my HTC One phone from work.
