DNR has won. They want $5000 a year for the site that we have shared with the local city and ham groups. This is a site that this group has had for decades. DNR does NOT own the building, tower, Internet, power or generator yet the nice new folks at DNR are out for green blood. Please thank DNR for their service to the state of Washington.
Likely later this week power and Internet will be discontinued. We are looking at other nearby sites for one or both repeaters. Nothing set in stone as yet.
