435 Downtime

As you may have noticed, 435 is currently off air. Word is many antennas on the hill were damaged by recent storms with wind gusts up to 100 mph.

Could be antennas, transmitter, lighting strike blowing a polyphaser, etc. The rack has power and I can connect to the repeater via internet.

I’ve ordered some new equipment and assembling a team for a Santiago Mountain visit early April. Let me know if you are interested in joining us with your radio station skills. A service monitor would be helpful.

Forrest service says all the roads up are closed except Silverado Canyon from Orange County, but they recommended waiting due to current mud sloppiness.
