IRLP service discontinued
The Yaesu System Fusion Digital/Analog repeater purchased with funds from the Roy Cunningham KC7IJH estate sale proceeds has been installed at the King Mountain site on the VHF frequency pair. The repeater is running in dual mode: incoming analog FM signals will re-transmit as FM, and incoming digital signals will re-transmit as digital. IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL USERS: The repeater output now includes a CTCSS tone (103.5, same as the input squelch). Analog users will need to implement CTCSS Squelch on their receivers if they don't wish to hear the digital transmissions, which will sound like "noise". The frequency pair remains 147.160 / 147.760, input(+) with an access tone of 103.5
The IRLP system stopped functioning due to equipment failure some months ago. There is no plan to return it to service. IRLP is incompatible with System Fusion.

As per earlier agreement, the 146.74 repeater on LOOKOUT mountain has been turned off (still on site) and the WC7SO Whatcom County Sheriff's ACS repeater has been installed at the site for an undetermined test period. The WC7SO repeater is a D-STAR gateway connected repeater operating on "Port C" with a 146.100 Mhz input and 146.700 output. The system utilizes a 6 mile IP network bridge on the 9cm amateur band to connect the repeater controller on Lookout mountain to the gateway server in the city of Bellingham.
Mt Constitution repeater on .74 is back on as of March 16 thanks to another repair trip made by the MBARC Repeater Group technicians to Orcas Island. The WC7SO D-STAR repeater is down for maintenance and upgrades and should be up next week.
