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.

OK we have our JOHN DAY crossband
repeater up an running. Access is via
446.580 with PL 167.9 you will then be heard
on the Mt Stephenson repeater and then into
our main repeater system. When in the JD
area give UHF a try on the new system. We
do have issues, but they are being resolved,
I hope to have some pics up before the end
