The VE3SRG repeater is back on the air - thanks to Ken, VE3PHC, for his efforts in this regard. The weekly 2 meter nets will return to VE3SRG. Please note that the timeout timer is now set to five minutes, the tail is shortened and the CW Identifier audio was a bit reduced - thank you to Luc VE3AR who made a site visit to make the changes.

The VE3ONL repeater is back on the air, thanks to Luc, VE3AR, and Steve, VE3RX.
