MARS has arranged a temporary solution to the problem of QRM on the repeater from mainland France. The Salazie connection has been disabled thus eliminating this problem. However, there maybe local Hams still interested in using the cross band repeater to make DX QSOs with mainland France. Those wishing to make such contacts with mainland France should send an email to the Secretariat advising their preferences for a time slot in a day so that an enabling access procedure can be arranged. As of now, Jean Marc 3B8DU (the control operator) and the President Daniel 3B8GJ are the only authorised persons with access control of the repeater system.
