MADISON COUNTY ARES OPERATIONS MOVE

MADISON COUNTY ARES OPERATIONS MOVE
The 146.790 repeater is essentially down, the only operational input at this time is the PL 127.3 and that receive site is compromised at best.
The 442.400 repeater is down
All real-world Madison county ARES operations will be occurring on the 145.230 repeater pl 79.7 as this is the ARES backup and SKYWARN primary repeater.
I will be investigating repeater options as far as having another backup repeater that covers the county.
From what I understand neither repeater will be a quick easy fix.
I will be formally asking the Lewis and Clark club about moving our Sunday net and primary operations.
SKYWARN operations will have precedence over ARES on the repeater. So, there would no ARES nets when severe weather threatens Madison , Calhoun or Jersey counties.
Reminder Madison county ARES primary simplex of 146.540 secondary simplex 146.580
