The Kachina repeater maintenance team made another trip up to Greens Peak on Sunday October 31, 2021 to replace a faulty repeater antenna with a better one. Many thanks to Ken Troxel, Doug Troxel NQ5G, Jim Mortensen W7AZY, Randy Beecroft W7RJB, and Marie Mortensen N7SKS for their efforts. Here are a few pictures.
