The antenna and feedline at the KA5VFU repeater site in McHenry are awaiting repairs of storm-inflicted damage. The repeater is operational but with significantly degraded range. The Friday Night DX Net has been temporarily suspended. We'll post updates as they become available.

                    == Hurricane Zeta, October 28 2020 ==

Hurricane Zeta inflicted considerable damage on the K5GDX club station. Images and commentary may be found in the Events area under Hurricane Zeta.     

The extent of the damage is being assessed and the way forward is under consideration. Stay tuned.
