Great to see Zl2AA-1, the digi, back on the air. Have not heard of anyone having done anything so maybe it was due to the high winds over the last few weeks. Will try to keep aware of it's operation while asking around to see what may have caused the interruption,
 Have completed modifications to original 680 repeater for direct connection of IRLP and as part of the modifications have donated and installed the required audio transformers, cables and plugs.  To enable bench testing of both the main and spare 680 T200 repeaters when on is not in use I have also donated and installed a Tait T296 power supply in the second repeater bin.  This also means that change over of the repeaters only requires disconnection of the cords and the repeater bin can be replaced as one unit with the faulty repeater complete for bench testing
 When possible will be attempting direct connection of the IRLP to the presently installed standby repeater which is at present working well with the original IRLP system and the new smaller computer
