I'm glad to announce that W7MOT.org is back online after a length outage.
While the site has been off line all applications have been updated. There are some defaults that I have not customized and thus there will be some pages not looking normal. Let me know if you find something that needs attention or is not working.
I have placed the site back on line as of 8/23/2015 3:00 PM.

W7MOT-15, 927.4375 Mhz, is on the air as of Friday June 19th, 2015.
The final hardline issue is resolved. The delayed was a missing 1" hole in the roof's steel access box. The hole has been punched, hardline connected and repeater powered ON. 15 minute workparty on the roof, 110 degrees, and sunny.
At the same time we moved the repeaters from one rack to a perminate rack. Of course this was another hour's work, in air conditioning. All went well. Both W7MOT-14 and W7MOT-5 are ON the Air in their new home.
W7MOT-14 and W7MOT-15 are open for all to use. If you use the repeaters or have problems, please take the time to provide comments using our Repeater Reporting system found on our website, w7mot.org under >>Repeaters on the main menu.
The site manager is TD Kennard, N7ISR. He can be contacted via email found under >>About Us>>Repeater Site Managers or use the Repeater Reporting System under >>Repeaters on the main menu.
You may not be aware of the W7MOT-14 (UHF) and W7MOT-15 (900 Mhz) Repeaters. They have been operational for about 4 years. However, they have been somewhat shadowed by some of the original building structure and for the past 2 years by the new 5 story building addition.
The W7MOT-14 (UHF) and W7MOT-15 (900 Mhz) have been relocated. The antennas are now located on the roof of the new 5 story addition at a HAG of 90 ft and a clear view of the SE Valley horrizons and mountains. The Repeaters were relocated to the 5th floor Telcom Rm.
ARLB007 FCC "Paperless" Amateur Radio License Policy Now in Effect
Starting today, February 17, the FCC no longer routinely issues paper license documents to Amateur Radio applicants and licensees. The Commission maintains that the official Amateur Radio license authorization is the electronic record that exists in its Universal Licensing System (ULS), although the FCC had routinely continued to print and mail hard copy licenses until this week.
