CURRENT STATUS – OFFLINE

This used to be the WA9KLZ machine in Lafayette. When Terry decided to relocate to New Mexico he sold his six meter repeater
to W9YB, and the 220 repeater and duplexers to N9DKI. Since the Hawkins site is higher than N9DKI’s QTH, he has loaned
the repeater to the Purdue Club for the time being. And it’s really cool to for the club to have repeaters on the four most
popular bands where repeaters are found!

There is a continuing problem with interference on the input frequency. We will be hauling a spectrum analyzer up to the
site to try and determine just what the heck it is that the repeater is hearing.

We would happily install a td-5 PL encoder if someone wants to donate one. ;-)
