The 145.490 repeater is temp out of service and may or may not go back online. If so at a greatly reduced output power.
Chuck Moffatt (N5VGK) has put the 444.825 repeater back online to compensate for the loss of the 490 machine. There is no tone right now and a normal +5 mghz split for the input.
We at NEMRA would like to thank Chuck for all that he does for local amateur radio and if you see him please bestow a gratuitous “Thank You” for allowing us the use of his repeaters. He does this as a hobby but when it effects his business, he has to prioritize fun for business. Sometimes fun losses out.
Please use the 444.825 repeater at your convenience and help Chuck see about the range ect to gauge the repeaters effectiveness.
Thanks and 73.

Good evening everyone!!
We had a great meeting last night with very little business and talked mostly about questions and discussion of general ham radio and VE testing.
I would like to personally welcome our two newest members to the NEMRA family and club, Darwin Brooks (N5EIC) from Belden and John Crowley (KI5BRF) from Plantersville.
Both are newer Amateur Extras and wanting to learn.
Please welcome them if you see or talk to them.
