The Barnstable Amateur Radio Club‘s 440 repeater has been removed from service for an indefinite period of time, according to a recent article posted on the club’s web site.
Possible interference to the U.S. Air Force’s PAVE PAWS facility on Cape Cod prompted the BARC Board of Directors to remove the 443.500 MHz repeater from service until such time as the FCC makes a ruling on the matter.
According to Barnstable ARC Vice President Jim Bradbury, WA1KCC, “This is a voluntary move by the club; we have not been cited for any interference at this time.”
