Hello All,

Thanks to Kevin WA6FAF we are now running dual repeaters on AO-51, as
per the schedule below.  The 145.880/435.150 repeater is for QRP
operations only --unless-- you are contacting a Scout station during
the Jamboree On The Air (JOTA) this weekend.

The early part of this week is a GREAT time for new and/or
inexperienced operators with simple/portable gear to make some
contacts on the QRP repeater!  Some hams are reluctant to attempt
contacts because of the normally fast pace on 435.300, so here is a
chance for folks to make some contacts they might otherwise not even

Encourage people to make use of this mode--both for QRP and for JOTA!!!

Operators on the East coast can expect some early morning
interruptions on 435.150 while we download telemetry.
