Communications in Hawaii are being backed up by ham radio in Hawaii.

The D-star Repeater on 443.300 as of August 27, 2017 is off the
air and will be moved to another tower in Auburn.
The Poland repeater 147.315, was relocated to another location on White Oak Hill in Poland with the same height or more and 50 watts. 
The Auburn Repeater 146.61 was also taken down and
relocated at Ivans house in Lewiston on Saturday morning Sept. 23 and is now back on the air.
We are waiting for City of Auburn to start on the
relocation of their 911 system to our location. The 70 ft tower
will be taken down and replaced with a 180 ft tower. We will not be at that site, we are moving to another 180 ft tower in Auburn on Gracelawn road after the antennas can be installed.
The condition of the old .61 antenna is not good. The club voted to buy a replacement antenna at the October 4th meeting to be installed at the new location on Gracelawn Road.
The latest official information will be posted here, so you don't have to rely on the rumor mill, when the move happens, the exact time table is to be posted here.
