    2.0 Notes & Observations

    2.1 General Notes

    Note 1: This repeater was vandalized several years ago, so it's good news if it's back on the air.

    Note 2: Moved from KE4GTM's back yard in Gastonia.

    Note 3: Most 440 repeaters in the area are short-distance machines, being located on the town's water tank or whatnot, with little elevation and/or a long coax run. The 443.85 machine offers good coverage of Gaston County and most of Mecklenburg, while stations can work the 53.39 side from down near Waxhaw; so it's proving to be a very popular pair of machines.

    Note 4: This repeater was in the process of being moved back to its perch after operating from a temporary location. It has been out of service for a while now, and there is no estimate (to my knowledge) of when it will be back, if ever.

    Note 5: This repeater sustained some equipment damage and is out of service. There is no estimate (to my knowledge) of when it will be repaired, if ever.

    2.2 Caveats

    2.3 Editorial

    Well, I guess to make this format right, I gotta put some words down in here.

    This is going to be mainly some garbage typing here, just to put some text in to make the page fill up so there is some scrolling room, so I can test out the index tags...

    this is prime KDJ testing here, so don't be surprised to see this some times.

    I suppose I gotta write a couple of more sentences...

    And here is another one...

    (and another.)
