System Status Update 6/1/14

Thanks to the N7PIR technical guys three of the repeaters are linked again.  As of Sunday afternoon 6/1/2014, the Salem, Mt Hood and Grizzly Mountain repeaters are linked which re-establishes communications between Central Oregon and the Willamette Valley. If you were at the last N7PIR breakfast in addition to lots of other news you heard that progress continues to be made on the system.  If you weren't there, keep looking here for more information and come to the next meeting.  Check this web site about a week before the meeting (last saturday of each month) for the location as we occasionally move it and are planning for the west side in June.


For more detailed information check the Status Page.  To see a map click Three Linked Repeaters
