Well last time the VHF radio displayed an error and was non-operational.

This time when it stopped digipeating around last weekend it has been heard
beaconing. So I think the radio is not totally non-operational so something
else is probably assumed to be the problem.

With all that said I saw this earlier which seems to show it digipeating a
couple days ago. Odd, right?
