BARK Repeater on Emergency Power- an Adjacent Tower Down

The tower adjacent to the BARK repeater town fell down Friday night in the high wind. it took out AC power and knocked the BARK repeater off the air..
Ken- K6WLS, Jack- K6JAC, Bob- KI6BZR, and Paul- KJ6GCP, went up to the site and got it running on battery power. There was a bit of damage to some contacts, but we were lucky! 10 feet to the left and the bark tower could have gone down.

The repeater is now is usable, working on battery power. If you use the BARK repeater PLEASE keep your QSOs short to conserve battery power.
