VHF Repeater repaired

The VHF repeater at 147.390, on the Firehall, now has the original repaired duplexer installed, thanks to Tony VE3DWI, John VE3JXX and Paul VA3PDC. The UHF repeater at 444.700+, PL 131.8, is connected to IRLP Node 2404, EchoLink Node VE3ERC-L, and the VHF repeater at 147.390+, PL 123, is connected to IRLP Node 2403, EchoLink Node VE3ERC-R. For now, the two repeaters will be linked for morning and Wednesday evening nets using the EchoLink nodes.
