The KD4BBM-6 digi is collocated in the cabinet for the 147.000 and 
442.325 repeaters at the 1500' level. Refurbishing of the equipment and 
antennas is taking place but due to the difficulty of accessing the 
tower (and cost of professional tower crew) it's taking longer than 
expected. The digi will be back on the air.
