Re: AO-51 2nd repeater operational

Thanks for the reply, Jeff. I only had half the picture when I asked  
this, earlier today, until Drew was kind enough to get me on track.  
But now, I'm curious - if the first channel is so busy, why isn't the  
second used more?  Did it only recently became available? Can they  
not operate concurrently? Does channel 1 have better ears &/or more  
power? I'll listen in on WD9EWK's activity this coming Saturday and  
maybe I'll learn a thing or two more.
