I just noticed that the DIGIpeater has been off for 2 days, but at about
1000 UTC or so, it was back on on a pass over California.

I have a D700.  Maybe I could help.  :)

but I wouldn't count on seeing the repeater back up until the backup D700 is
shipped up to them, or they receive a reprogramming file.
