Repeater Maintenance on August 10th

Hello All, The VE1YAR VHF repeater (146.730) will be offline at 8am on Wednesday (August 10) and will remain so for most of the day. Due to this, the Captain's Net will be held on VE1EKV (147.105+) that morning. This will be due to some work that will be performed on the tower that day. Regular operations will resume once the tower work has been completed. 73 for now VE1XT
