625 Repeater Issue

Update 146.625 has been moved

Update – 146.625 service has been restored.

At this time there seems to be an issue with the 146.625 repeater, and I am not sure when this issue will be resolved. In the event the repeater is still unavailable for this Wednesday’s net, the net will move to 145.210 with a PL tone (127.3) (for this week only).
