THE NEXT E.A.R.S. EATING MEETING will
be held be at Noble Roman's Pizza, Washington
and Boeke, in Evansville on Friday, March 7 at
REPEATER NEWS... Repairs continue on
146.925, 443.925, and 145.15. Eric N9KDB and
Pete WB9DRB have been working hard on
keeping things running. After 5.15 had been off
for nearly a month, Eric made the long journey
to Evansville and found the problem. A new
power supply was installed, fixing the problem
and getting 5.15 back on the air. Eric and Pete
recently went to Vincennes and re-tuned the
duplexers, transmitter, and receivers on
443.925. Thanks guys for all your assistance.
Plans are in the works to replace the 443.925
with a new (to us) Motorola solid state repeater,
along with a new Link repeater controller that
will allow for automatic scheduling of the Indy
link, and provide more DVR recording time. A
bigger rotation of IDs is also possible with the
new controller for more variety. The 146.925
and 145.15 amplifiers are still down, but both
are still operational at low power. 145.11 repairs
continue. Remember to use 107.2 tone encode
on the EARS repeaters. ALL EARS
REPEATERS ARE STILL OPEN FOR USE BY
ALL AMATEURS WHO FOLLOW PROPER
RULES AND OPERATING PROCEDURES.
THANKS TO DEBBIE ROUSCH (XYL-KB9KCF) for reproducing and preparing the

help is greatly appreciated.
