Local ham radio operators met in Abbeville to install a new repeater in 
the 147.06Mhz / KC5Z slot. The previous Spectracom repeater which served 
Vermilion Parish for over 30 years was finally deemed unrepairable.  A 
new Motorola repeater was donated for long term use by Keith Hendrick, 
WA5ISZ and is getting good reports on signal strength and voice 
quality.  The repeater is now back on the air full time and will soon 
have a PL tone of 103.5.  This is an open repeater and also serves as 
host to the Vermilion Parish ARES net.  Thanks to Gerald Ognibene, KC5Z 
for his many years of service as the repeater's trustee.  Other hams 
involved in the changeover and repair / inspection of the antenna and 
feed line were Weston Hebert, KB5WI; Arnold Lemaire, KE5JXC and Kris 
Wotipka, KD5QYV.

Thanks
