- Path between WR7VHF-5 and WR7VHF-5 (Mt. Spokane).
The TNC's, UHF radio, and VHF radio have been moved to Otis Orchards
(home of KD7DMP). The equipment has been repaired and is working
fine, including access to the packet network and WR7VHF-10.
However the WR7VHF-4 VHF range is less now! The equipment
will be moved back to Mt Spokane in January, if it continues to work
fine. Please test it as you are able.
