[Updated 9/7/2014] Configuration changes have been made to the new link interface from 145.160 to 147.225 to prevent timeouts, turn off extra beeps and improve link audio quality. The link is now permanently connected.
There is an issue with noise coming from the 145.160 repeater receiver up the link to 147.225. We are aware of this one and have a trip planned to Cheyenne Mountain to resolve it.
We're interested in hearing of other issues. Please let us know of any issue you hear.
We have received and confirmed a report that the 224.980 transmitter is not being heard in the Denver area. A Conifer site trip is planned to investigate this further.
[Update 8/26/2014, WA1JHK] The link hardware has been moved to the workbench for a final configuration change. It is due to be reinstalled shortly and linked to the network.
[Update, 6/22/2013, WA1JHK] The Lee Hill end of the new 147.225-to-145.460 digital link has been installed and tested. Work on the Conifer end is underway.
[Update, 5/27/2013, WA1JHK] Today we crossed the 147.225 noise off the list.
[Update, 2/2/2013, WA1JHK] Today we crossed two more items off the list below.
[Update:] The link is still down. Testing on the hardware is continuing and going well. We don't yet have a scheduled date for installation.
[2/27/2012:] Users have been hearing a weak signal on 147.225/145.160/224.980. After a little troubleshooting we discovered that the link from 145.460 to the rest of the 147.225 System is not working properly. We have disabled the link for now.
I suppose it's somewhat obvious since you're reading this that the new CRA website is now the one you will see when you go to www.w0cra.org. What you're seeing is called a Content Management System, a more efficient way of delivering both stable and changing content to users. The underlying software driving the site is Drupal. (For those of you that are curious, you can read more at www.drupal.org.)
