I talked to one of the control ops via Echolink a few weeks ago and he said 
it had been moved. I can't verify it. It was a simplex echolink link into a 
repeater. There were actually two of them, one on 145.850, and the other on 

I didn't know anyone else was working on this. Had he not said they had been 
moved Riley was going to be my next call! Thanks for your efforts.

This sort of thing is one of the reasons we shouldn't use CTCSS on satellite 
uplinks unless we have to....
