Due to alleged interference to the Beale AFB PAVE PAWS radar, this repeater, along with many other Sacramento Valley UHF repeaters, has been asked to reduce power output to a level that makes functioning as a useful repeater nearly impossible.
Therefore, the repeater went off the air on August 30, 2007. This shutdown is necessary to prevent interference to the PAVE PAWS radar. At this time, it is unknown if this shutdown will be permanent or not. The technical challenges to meeting the non-interference requirements while operating a useful repeater are very high. We are exploring various options to reconfigure or replace the repeater (potentially with a repeater operating in another band).
