Over the weekend the CARP High Level repeater on 444.725 suffered an equipment failure. Rob Mavis (AE6GE) and Patrick May (KI6QOH) went to the site to assess the problem with the repeater not transmitting, but was receiving just fine. Upon opening up the repeater a failed resistor in the PA was located. The PA was removed from the repeater and brought back down to Clovis for repair and testing. The repeater should be back up fairly soon.

Simulated Repeater Failure Net 3/11/2010
The Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers Net for 3/11/2010 will be conducted as a simulated repeater failure net. The Net will be conducted on 147.675 MHz simplex at 19:00 local time. This net normally meets on the K6ARP Repeater system. We invite all amateurs in the area to take part in this Net.
After a power and subsequent generator failure during a powerful storm that caused a repeater outage at the high level repeter site, CARP has decided to have periodic simulated Repeater Failure Nets.
Net control station for this net will be Patrick May, KI6QOH located in Clovis near Gettysburg/Fowler. Stations with directional antennas should orient them in that direction. Stations should take note of stations that check-in but are not recognized by Net Control and relay that station to net control when the relaying station is called.
All repeaters will be disabled for the duration of the net.
We look forward to hearing from as many stations as we can.
Thursday, March 11, 2001 – 19:00
Net Control will be KI6QOH located in SE Clovis.
