Heather is Taking a Vacation

Heather is on a much needed vacation

 

If you have noticed since Tuesday afternoon Heathers been absent from her normal duties of iding the repeater and making announcements

She is currently on vacation while we make repairs to the Arcom Controller 

It appears that lightning or a power surge due to it caused a memory failure in the controller

The repeater is operating on its internal controller with only a CW ID which meets FCC requirements

We will notify everyone when the situation changes

 

Thank you
