KM4GHM REPEATER DOWN!

Nicholas Winslow KK4UTQ:

Confirmed this morning that our tower suffered a direct lightning strike sometime Friday that destroyed most if not all equipment including our comet antenna. Plans are in place for the repair and replacement of damaged equipment and the repeater should be back online within a few days. For the record, our repeater itself was not harmed – the lightning arrester and surge protector did their jobs. In the meantime, as always, primary simplex backup is USIM1 and the W4LYR Repeater in Watertown is available for general use. 

Thank you for your understanding
