On Thursday, October 22, 2020, the Trustee completed fall maintenance of the repeater. Services included:

Labeled hardline down lead
  • Replaced temporary patch cables and adapters with rugged custom cables.
  • Replaced temporary PL259 lightning arrestor with new N-connector version.
  • Labeled down feeds for easier inventory.
  • Checked all grounds and tightened all connectors.

We still need the following enhancements:
