Andy would like to have a few more operators for the Dempsey Challenge special event station N1D. You would do this from home on October 7 or 8th or both days. If interested contact Andy at kb1doi@arrl.net

QSL N1D by sending a SASE for card or a SASE 10x12 for certificate to:

Important Information
The D-star Repeater on 443.300 as of August 27, 3017 is off the
air and is being moved to another tower in Auburn.
The Poland repeater 147.315, will be shut down Sunday Sept 3,
2017 and relocated to another location in Poland with the same
height or more. Unknown as to when it will be back up. We plan
by the end of Sept.
The Auburn Repeater 146.61 will also be taken down and
relocated. We are waiting for City of Auburn to start on the
relocation of their 911 system to our location. The 70 ft tower
will be taken down and replaced with a 180 ft tower. We will not be at that site, we are moving to another 180 ft tower in Auburn.
The latest official information will be posted here, so you don't have to rely on the rumor mill, when the move happens, the exact time table is still to be determined .
