146.82, the Christmas Mountain repeater update…

Doug N5HYD and Bill W5ATO made a recon trip on Sat, 8/12 to diagnose the outage.  Although weather conditions caused the trip to run short, it was concluded that three of the site’s five solar panels were damaged and were draining the system batteries which were down to four volts.  The charge controller was replaced and the working panels were re-attached before an approaching storm forced them off of the mountain.  The site remains down.  A detailed report from Doug is available here and another trip is planned for Saturday 8/19.
