Hi All,

The mode change has occurred. The L/U voice repeater is now active and working fine.  Enjoyed L/U QSOs with KC9ELU, N5UXT, and WA3SWJ.  Note--remember to experiment with your L-band uplink frequency!  Many users (including myself) find that tuning your uplink higher (in the 1268.703-1276.708 MHz range) works best.

Currently 435.300 is running at 480 mW and 435.150 is running at 390 mW.  
If you can switch U-band antenna polarity, please remember that 435.300 is RHCP (right hand circular polarization) and 435.150 is LHCP (left hand).
