“Impromptu Fox Hunt” Solves Repeater Lock-Up on the RASON (CT) Repeater

RASON website screenshotChuck Newman, NA1CN, reported that the Radio Amateur Society of Norwich (RASON) club repeater input was receiving a signal locking up 146.730 on the evening of June 21.  Dave Thackston, K1DCT, identified the signal near his neighborhood on  Route 2, between Norwich and Foxwoods.  NA1CN called for an impromptu fox hunt on the input frequency of 146.130. The fox hunters coordinated their hunt on the 147.060 Salem repeater.

Kevin Harkins, KA6PDG, reported via the club mailing list two hours later that the problem was resolved and was “accidental in nature.”  He thanked those amateurs who assisted in locating the source, acknowledging assistance from:  Dave, K1DCT; Chuck, NA1CN; Dave, WA1IKN; Tim, KC1TWR; Jerry, NT1O; Jeremy, KC1NBY; John, WF1C; Joe, K1IKE.
