Breakfast on the West Side!

The N7PIR Monthly User Group Breakfast is coming up Saturday, September 27th from 8:30am - 10:00 am. This month it will take place at Elmers Restaurant in Tigard.  Elmers is located at 14055 SW Pacific Hwy. Join us for some socializing and to find out the latest plans and N7PIR happenings. 


Please let Brien (K7KSN) or one of us know if you are planning to join us. You will likely hear us on the Skyline Repeater on Saturday morning.  Letting one of us know is very important because we need to tell Elmers how many people we are expecting so that everyone is accomodated.

System Status Update 8/26/14

The replacement Goat Mountain system is essentially complete and is undergoing final testing.  Once we get some administrative processes finalized we can get it up on the mountain. At this point, the end of September appears to be a likely time frame.

Work continues on the new Eugene machine.  In addition, there are other system improvement projects being discussed and worked out.  More on those a little later.

Thanks to Brien, Garrett, John, Mike, Rob and the whole crew for their hard work.
