Looks like my webhost updated the root of my website where there was a redirect to this blog. Not sure how long it’s been down by sorry for the down time.
Radio has been moved to the back burner in my life as I’ve become more active in my son’s Cub Scout Pack. The Echolink and UHF repeaters are both down at this time, not sure if I’ll bring them back online at my house any time soon. The location just isn’t great for coverage. If someone else in the Middleton area with good line of sight wants to step up, we’ll look at moving the gear at that point.
I’m chasing some stray RF issues causing problems at home from either the VHF Echolink node or the UHF repeater getting in to a lighting circuit in my garage. Both are offline for the time being while I troubleshoot.
I’m in the progress of finishing up testing on the 146.500 PL100.0 EchoLink simplex node for Middleton. You can view details here.
I am in the process of putting up a 70 cm repeater on 444.275+ RX PL 100.0/TX PL 100.0 and a simplex Echolink node on 146.500 RX PL 100.0/TX PL 100.0. Antenna and feedline work was completed on Saturday with the help of Andy Darr, KF7JBY. Hoping to have the 70 cm repeater online for testing by this weekend!

In the coming weeks I’ll update the site to restore the previous EmComm and Public Service content.
