W0IN Repeater Update

If you have been experiencing difficulty getting into the 147.210+ JARC repeater, it is because the technical committee has had to tighten the squelch.

It has been confirmed that there is low level background noise barely in the passband which is getting through the filters into the receiver. This is causing it to key up. The fix is to tighten the squelch while we investigate.

This issue first was noticed November 21st, 2014.

An alternate solution is to turn on the PL tone for the receiver, which may have to be done, if we are unsuccessful.

In any case, at the officers meeting today, it was noted that the technical committee is working toward a permanent solution, but is still investigating the issue.
