Just reporting that the KD5YBU repeater in Houston is apparently back to at least most of its former glory!
The previous ambulance service abandoned a fairly new antenna and heliax to our use, and we made the switch this afternoon. Monday evening we had good reports from Saltillo, Columbus, Starkville, Pickens, AL, and an HT in Vardaman! So initial reports would say its doing pretty good.
We’ll be making efforts soon to get our controller back in line so we can use some of the features we’re currently missing. (Wes, can you find the software?)
We’re on 146.895 with a tone of 141.3, in case it’s dropped out of your memories, so plug us in and give it a try. We do a short ARES net each Monday evening at 730PM also, and would be glad to hear you.
73 & Merry Christmas!
