This is the important part:

"At this time the command team is turning the repeater on and off during some US passes, mainly in the afternoon, and only as available. The repeater is open to all when this happens."

It's only going to be on when a command station is around and available to do it, until we get the process automated. I haven't had the chance to turn it on since Sunday afternoon.
