Hello All-

XE2EOS near Guatemalan border freqs back to normal & photos xe2/n6kzb

After the last series of tropical storms and hurricanes the antenna system at XE2EOS suffered.
As a result many weeks back the freq line up was down to a couple of bands. RFI issues
with high SWR forced us to change the line up.

Due to warm weather this past week, area technicians from Chiapas were able to brave the mountain road and make it to the site.
It was discovered that the 4:1 UnUn was full of water and the 90 foot wire almost to the ground.

UpDATE: VA7DGP BPQ32 Winlink Gateway

I've had some issues with a script file that kept crashing the system. I found the glitch and were back up and running. I have also added script that if system receives NTS message via Packet. The message is forwarded via HF to NTS Target Station on HF. We shall see whether it gets used.
