There are quite a few repeaters in the Ohio list these days, that is good to see. I have one on there myself.
However, another member told me he emailed the owner(?) of the larger group of repeaters, which are marked Private, Paid, Members Only and such...and was told not all of them existed. The member thought maybe the owner felt he could "reserve" channels by posting them.
Secondly, Do we want repeaters listed if they are only for the owners or private "members" to use? I have an open repeater...but I also have a "private" one, that I do not list.
I'm not saying it "should" be one way or another, but just asking what others think. Maybe that owner can chime in and tell us what's up as well.
I guess I just lean towards..if you are going to make a repeater known to the public, then it should be open or request-permission type of thing...but paid, membership, private? Just seems to make me think of someone trying to look good on paper. "I've got an ice cream cone...and you can't have one"
Could just be the mood I'm in today, though.... ha ha ha.
