July 8, 2016,
I was going to announce this last night, but didn’t for obvious reasons.
All Dry Ridge ham radio infrastructure (packet, APRS, 440 repeater, 2m propagation beacon, etc) will be shut down in the coming weeks. Things will be turned off in phases, probably starting with the packet/APRS gear this weekend.
It has been a good 25+ years serving the area, no regrets. For a variety of reasons/opportunities it is time for me to move on to other things. I’ll be sending a more detailed notice out to the appropriate local users when time allows.
