Real-World Fox Hunt

On July 18, 2013, the Short Mountain Repeater was locked up by a transmitting signal from a station and disrupted the hospital net. W4WRB recounts the series of events he and other radio techs took in finding the offending station. This is an interesting look into the behind-the-scenes requirements of what it takes to keep a repeater operational.
