breakfast meeting April 29, 2015
We have installed a circuit board in the 146.610 repeater that does the station ID using a ladies voice.
We welcome comments about this change from repeater users, if you like it we can leave it on,
if not it is easy to change back to the CW ID that was used before.
Please email your comments to the webmaster
So far comments are: The voice is fine or OK but only every 10 minutes 7 votes.
I don't care either way as long as it is legal with the FCC 3 votes.
