    Will there be an option to subscribe? I am assuming there will be ongoing operating expenses. Or will there eventually be a DI amatuer radio club to support it?

    Great question. The ongoing expenses would be things like repairs and upgrades. AC power is currently going to be covered by Pat Kelly, if it gets out of hand it may need to be switched to solar but I don't think it would come to that. It would be really nice to see a DI A R Club, we will see what happens, maybe this will inspire more locals to get involved and get licensed!

    If everything was purchased new probably $5k, we should do much better than that assuming we can find some used equipment, primarily the antenna array and duplexer.

    I'll see if I can round up any items and bring along to DOA.
