[W8LKY] New repeater coming online Sunday afternoon.

I wanted to send out an e-mail to let you know about some happenings on the repeater front.
Sunday afternoon, a few of us are going to be dropping my tower, and installing the repeater antenna. At the same time, Bob, WB8OVQ will be here to help set up the new machine.
Before you ask, thank you for wanting to help, but NO ADDITIONAL HELP is needed at this time. The best thing you can do is stay away, so we can do our job.
Here’s what you CAN do, though.
1) Once testing begins, we will be shutting down the existing repeater.
2) Once you hear us on the air testing the new machine, PLEASE stay off the air! If we want to hear how the machine is sounding at your QTH, we’ll put out a call.
3) Once the machine is set up and made public, you will need to have your radio’s tone squelch & PL both programmed to 110.9. (Frank, WA8WHP will be available at the club meeting on Wednesday night to assist in programming your rigs.)
4) I highly recommend creating a separate memory in your rigs for the new repeater. This is in case we have issues (God forbid) with the new setup, and have to revert back to the machine at OMO’s QTH.
I believe in the power of prayer, and know that a lot of you do as well. So I’m asking that everyone please keep your repeater committee in your prayers, as we take this big step.
Thanks everyone for your help & patience as we worked towards this day.
