2016-05-03 19:46:14.946531 K5WXL CheckIn None Removed the old controller and link radios from the 525. Moved the DMR to the green water tower to its permanent home. Beamed internet to the DMR machine. Matt has everything together at the house to include a Quantar repeater to replace the 525, has to build brand new cables and install new link radios CDM 750s. No timeline for new 525 going live, once the cables come in this week, he'll program the repeater. Second issue, interference coming in on the 525's input freq, some kind of repeater with output freq on our input freq, no idea where it's coming from yet. Tone is different which is why we don't hear it all the time, only with someone's valid transmission. might have to find a new freq pair
