LX0ARR goes QRT
This was the last time I was at the ADRAD Kayldall repeatersite.
Times have changed. A new board of directors was elected and many of the components I built for the club were no longer needed by the ADRAD Kayldall. Among them was the APRS digipeater LX0ARR. I recovered the digi which also provided telemetry, weather data, email alert in case of a power failure and object generation of the clubs automatic stations. Since then the APRS map around Rumelange has been quite blank ... .
Nevertheless the components werde not lost. They were recycled and upgraded for the LARU APRS digipeater LX0SCI.
The club decided to keep the Raspberry, the relay-board and the power supplies. But they never asked access to the Raspberry. The Linutop of LX1DUC hosting the DMR-master-servers for LX0RU and LX0DRR were removed in August 2015 taking the 2 repeaters offline from the DMRplus network. As I am writing this (2017/FEB/12), LX0RU is on the network intermittently and LX0DRR has not come back on the network. Good work ADRAD Kayldall!
