why would they want to switch to a repeater that half of the ops in the 
area can not use...? Isn't  the idea suppose to be that k0mpx can look 
at a repeater in a area of interest and see what is going on in that 
area? hard to do if the spotter cannot get into or hear the repeater..

why not ask  k0mpx  to think about upgrading their equipment..... more 
tower height, better yagi... preamp at antenna...?? that would help them 
all around.....

what is wrong.. do they not hear the 47  or can't the get into the 
repeater? or both?
