Was talking with a ham friend of mine who lives in Casper about setting up a weekly sked. We were going to use a local linked repeater system because it was convenient and easy for other ham acquaintances who only have a technician class license and VHF/UHF capability.
Turns out some hamsexy politics between repeater owners have resulted in the linked system going away.
We decided to do our sked on HF instead.
Never trust somebody else's infrastructure.
