N7QQU D-STAR Gateway Issues

I received a report yesterday of issues of connecting to the N7QQU D-STAR Gateway. Subsequent investigation shows that there are issues with our Sprint hotspot, causing internet connectivity issues.

The repeater is working fine for local use, however connections to any reflectors or other D-STAR Gateways will be unavailable until I visit the site this weekend (December 9 or 10) to resolve the issue.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions, thanks!

Sincerely,
