According to Ivan n1oxa.
2018 Hamfest
Communications in Hawaii are being backed up by ham radio in Hawaii.

The D-star Repeater on 443.300 as of August 27, 2017 is off the
air and will be moved to another tower in Auburn.
The Poland repeater 147.315, was relocated to another location on White Oak Hill in Poland with the same height or more and 50 watts. 
The Auburn Repeater 146.61 was also taken down and
relocated at Ivans house in Lewiston on Saturday morning Sept. 23 and is now back on the air. The 70 ft tower
was 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 on Gracelawn road after the antennas can be installed. The installation should happen sometime in May.
The condition of the old .61 antenna is not good. The club voted to buy a replacement antenna at the October 4th meeting to be installed at the new location on Gracelawn Road.
At the club meeting May second the club decided to abandon the Leeds repeater project. Instead the coordination will be changed to the club presidents new house in Livermore that is on a taller hill than the Leeds location and has internet access that the Leeds site did not have.
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 to be posted here. Update:4/4/2018 The climber hopes to get to our projects sometime in May.
