TASMA: Damaged by lightning. KA6UAI has indicated an interest in operating his Palomar Mtn. system on 146.820, & has performed some informal testing on the
frequency. Observations from NO6B indicate that this system would in fact be compatible with Johnstone Peak, however compatibility with Onyx Peak is very questionable. KA6UAI is currently #5 on the coordination waiting list, but the systems ahead of KA6UAI on the list (Mt. Wilson, La Crescenta, & 2 systems in Running Springs) would be clearly incompatible with Johnstone Peak. W6FNO advised that his Onyx Peak system needs to be put back on the air by no later than the August T.C. meeting.
TASMA: system observed non-operational: response received, progress
report. Additional correspondence received from W6FNO: the system was repaired & returned to service earlier in the year, but has apparently been damaged by lightning. Therefore, a major upgrade involving complete replacement of the entire Onyx Peak system is planned.
TASMA reports off air and ordered to be on air within 45 days.
Added: Net. Testing machine.
