YS1YS El Salvador gateway removed from Service.

The HF gateway YS1YS in El Salvador has been removed from service.

It will return when it has a new location and is reliable.

-------------------------- Update 7/5/2019------------------

Antenna damaged by tree cutters in the secure area not paying attention, was not a storm.

Will take a while to fix and repair it, have to have escort to get in, sigh...

Mexican Amateur Radio Volunteers Provide Communication in Wildfire Response

Mexican radio amateurs provided communication support in late May from a fire scene in a remote area to civil protection authorities in Monterrey, Mexico. Two-member teams of volunteers were flown in via helicopter since May 20, the first day of radio support, when the fire had already been burning for a couple of days. The fire in Pajonal -- about 20 kilometers south of Monterrey -- covered more than 200 acres in rough terrain. Temperatures topped 100 °F.

HI8COE Republic of Dominica gateway 40 meter change

Had to change the 40 meter channel so as not to interfere with a net.
Requested by local operators.

Reason I post the info here is many at sea are using HI8COE, Republic of Dominica gateway.

So want to get the word out to the maritime community.
