Talco

Talco has been resuscitated, however it’s temporarily on 442.125 / PL 151.4 while the primary repeater is sent off for repairs PA was cooked on the primary repeater. For reasons only known by Yaesu, we couldn’t get the temporary DR1X to move off of 442.125. Sometimes you have to improvise and adapt. Thanks to KB5EDB, KB5WB, KG5RDF and WA5TXI for the teamwork to get this back on the air. When the primary repeater comes back from warranty repairs at Yaesu, Talco will go back on its designated frequency of 442.200 / 151.4.

Thanks to the 53 stations who checked into the net tonight. We learned a few new things:
– The government shutdown has caused the FCC to suspend operations including issuing and renewal of licenses. https://www.theverge.com/…/fcc-suspension-partial-federal-g…
– If the government is not fully funded before SKYWARN school then those sessions that are scheduled will be canceled.https://www.weather.gov/psr/ShutdownImpacts
– NCTC is available on the TGIF DMR TalkGroup 189. For instructions on the use of the TGIF DMR system on your hotspot, send an email to K4WZV Robert https://www.qrz.com/db/K4WZV and he can provide you with instructions. TGIF is not interoperable with the Brandmeister or DMR MARC systems.
– KB5WB said that there are plans to work on the Paris and Talco repeaters on the air Saturday/
