Author: n9deg - Published 2022-11-05 20:11 - (870 Reads)
It seems we are having some trouble at a couple of sites with this cold weather. The Green Bay and Lake Geneva repeaters are currently down.

Due to experience, we expect Green Bay to come online once the temperature rises above single digits,

We are unsure of the issue with the Lake Geneva site, it has lost transmit audio. We are hoping it is also temperature related as well.

FM38 announces the availability of all three popular VOIP technologies,

know, we are the first repeater in Wisconsin to offer all three full-time.

periodically for nets like the Wednesday evening 145.130 swap-net.

FM38 Receive Site Status

Author: John Flanagan - Published 2006-01-15 12:40 - (6117 Reads)
Remote receive site "F" (Menomonee falls) is down. This site will not be brought back up because we have decided not to renew our arrangement with the tower site owner.

Remote receive site "U" (UWM/Milwaukee east side) site has been temporarily disabled due to an observed audio level imbalance with the other sites. We will re-enable it as soon as the audio levels are re-adjusted.
