The N2CNY repeater at 145.210 located in Saquoit, NY was taken offline this morning as a step in the replacement of the antiquated technology.
The old repeater has served us well but has become unreliable and too costly to operate in its current condition and location.
The Central New York Amateur Radio Association is shopping for new equipment which will allow us to move forward and bring the club into the 21st century.
We feel that our community will be better served by a repeater with echolink and possibly digital capability.
The CNYARA will be making arrangements with other clubs to be able to continue operation of the First Cup and After Dinner Nets until our new equipment is up and running.
We are excited to be able to open up our repeater to hams all over the world.
