145.270 Repeater Remains Shut Off

Due to ongoing interference, the 145.270 repeater remains out of service and shut down.  Jeremy Tannehill, KC0UJZ, part of the Nixa ARC Technical Committee, and James Adkins, KB0NHX, spoke recently about a new microwave dish that has been installed on the tower.  Jeremy is familiar with this type of dish and it is known to cause broadband noise problems due to the microprocessor.  As of now, we do not know who the dish belongs to, but it is mounted to the Verizon pod mount atop the water tower without permission from Verizon.  Currently, they are making official inquiries as to who the dish belongs to since it is also interfering with them re-positioning their antennas..

We hope to know more sometime in the following week.  Thanks for your patience as we try to sort out this issue.
