Link Status

12/4/19: Due to the squelch problem in Big Rapids, all northern links have been shut down until we can get there to service the site.

Mt Pleasant has a transmitter problem
Jackson output power is low
Big Rapids receiver is causing random key-ups on northern links

See the link status page for information on all sites.

If you use the link repeater system, please consider donating to help cover expenses. In addition to our operating expenses, we had to relocate our Big Rapids site. Using the Pay Pal link below, you can make a tax deductible single or monthly donation that helps to ensure the future the the IRA repeater system.
