146.780 Repeater is down

Update: Ice took out the antenna. Plan is to install a temporary in the near future, with a permanent fix when the weather improves.

The 146.78 repeater on Marys Peak went down sometime before Christmas Day. The cause will not be known until the responsible personnel are able to get to the site. The repeater is owned by Benton County ARES, and provides coverage over most of the Willamette Valley and much of the central coast. The nightly WOVEN net (7:30 pm each evening) will continue when possible on the 146.72 machine on Prairie Peak, but will be sporadic, as it is not reachable by several of the net controls.
