Isanti Repeater is Online

Isanti Repeater TowerDuring the 11/23/2022 net, it was apparent that something was not quite normal on the Isanti repeater.  There was much static during the net-- to the point where we moved over to the backup Crown repeater in case our usage would cause further damage.  One of the theories was that we were having a moisture problem in a connection due to the recent snow melting.

We discovered that the failure of a couple of unrelated components next to our antenna may have been causing the interference.  Mark, our resident tower-climber, checked our connections and, incidentally, removed the offending components.  The symptoms went away at that point.

Erv subsequently checked our SWR, rebooted the repeater, and it seems to be operating fine.
