 From the Sumbandila SO-67 team:

Apologies to all who had waited for SO-67 and for only now offering a warning
or explanation for the past two days' inactivity.

The task scheduler on Sumbandila was updated via a mechanism that was not
previously used, and which did not set the executable permissions of the
binary.  We did not understand the problem until this morning and could
therefore not predict if the repeater would be active.  We hope to fix this
tonight at 18:30 UTC.

In the meantime David Carr's status page was useful to know the situation
even before our passes, so the ham monitoring effort was not wasted.  Thanks

73 de ZR1CBC, Johann.

P.S. Please forward my message to other interested parties.  Besides your
enquiry I did not see any discussion.

Thank You Johann. Several amateurs have reported not hearing SO-67 on
it's scheduled activations this week, including myself just now at
0120-0135. Is something wrong?
