W8OAK DMR Repeater Down

Posted 8/31/2018 by KD8ATK
Due to some damage to the antenna for the W8OAK 2m repeater, it was necessary to take the W8OAK DMR Machine off line and connect the 2m repeater to that antenna. Our 2 meter machine is our primary frequency for emergency operations in the county, so it was necessary to make this change until the other antenna can be repaired or replaced. There is no timeframe available at this time for the repair to be completed.
