No power output on USB-Data modes from internal soundcard. Off the air until repaired.

W6SCF-10 Offline

W6SCF-10 failed to restart again this week. Unfortunately I am not able to visit the site until at least Monday afternoon. I have emailed the site owner in hope they may be around to power cycle the computer earlier.

In the mean time the digipeat function continues to operate and there are several RMS stations within range.
