From time to time we like to take a few minutes to thank
those who make some of the things we do possible.
Certainly a big thanks goes out to John Boluyt N8EOD.
Without him we would never have been able to finance the full three band
repeater. John travels alot, and doesn't even get to use the repeater that much,
but decided to help us with this project.
An equally big thank you goes to Dave Tubergen of
T&W Electronics. Dave has provided us with tower space for several WMPORN
projects. Dave is not a ham just yet, but we keep working on him. He asks very
little for all of the great things he does for us. Until you have tried to build
a respectable repeater, it is very difficult to understand how important and
valuable verticle realestate can be.
And finally, thanks goes out to FreedomNet internet services
for providing bandwidth for the DStar repeater gateway. This
bandwidth is a very important part of having the DStar repeater
connect with other DStar repeaters and users around the world.
There are many others who have also played a part here
and there toward making all of the systems possible. Thanks to all of you.
