Last night 17/1/11 690 appeared to be off the air. (It was operating normally during Monday and Sunday but may have been off part of Saturday morning.)
 Today 18/1/11 it was operating again normally at 0700 hours. It is hoped to check the problem out by going up to the site with with a Kordia contractor  within the next two weeks. Not only will this save the club round $100 or more but will allow time to fully check out the spare equipment while maybe finding out  what the problem is by remote tests in the meantime
 Note that the national system repeater at the same site has even better coverage, that IRLP is operational (Gisborne node on 680 and Hasting node on 725 number 6793), 685 also covers much of the same area as 690 as well as a lot more.
 The 4575 digi at the same site supplied by the same power supply and battery is operating normally both during receive and transmit
