146.820 Christmas Mountain back to normal
An intrepid team of volunteers led by Doug, N5HYD trekked to the top of Christmas Mountain near Terlingua and Big Bend National Park to replace the emergency 145.23 repeater that had been in temporary service there. Bill W5ATO, Chuck KG5BMK and Scott KI5ANQ enjoyed fine weather and scenic views throughout their mission.
Thanks to these volunteers for all they do!

New Alpine Frequency
Alpine has a new frequency to access the club’s repeater system. It is an odd configuration and is only in test mode at this time, but as we work out the details, we hope we can make it permanent.
The frequency is 446.150 SIMPLEX with 146.2 PL tone. Do note, as you try to program your radios for this frequency, most modern radios may try to use an offset transmit frequency for 446.150. You will likely have to force the SIMPLEX operation. FULL STORY HERE
