Many of you know that our W1SYE repeater went off the air during the storms of last Friday Aug 10th. Various remote attempts to restore operation were not successful.
Paul N1PSX (who, when not working for Amazon, or RI ARES, is one of the gurus behind the KA1RCI/NB1RI network), volunteered to go to the site to see what the problem was. He reports that a simple power cycle did not do the trick, but removing several of the plug in cards, spraying DeOxit on the contacts, and reseating them, did.
Our thanks to Paul for getting things working again!
