2011-Adventures in Repeater Land.
Chris Novara K7TVL was kind enough
to come over from Eugene/Springfeild,
and help get all our repeaters
optimized for the Oregon Connection.
Chris had already done work on the
Pine Mountain System last year. This
year was to finally get the Glass Butte
and Burns Butte systems optimized. So
on July 9th Mike AD7GC, Max KF7MAX,
and Bill N7RGB headed out a long
dusty, bumpy ride.

UPDATE!!! Our Glass Butte Repeater Antenna
has been fixed and all is well. Thanks Mike
AD7GC, John KE7GYB, and of course Ralph
