Good News, we have the new repeater online for 146.73. It is connected up to the controller and echolink.
This new repeater is a different brand than the previous repeater so it will sound different and have different characteristics than the old one.
We are still tweaking the audio levels for echolink so please be patient as we make small adjustments.
This new repeater has one odd quirk, it only sends out PL tone when it receives PL Tone. So if you have Tone Squelch turned on you will not hear the courtesy tone, controller announcements, etc. We have just learned of a solution to fix this but it will be a little while until we can implement this solution.
