Has anyone heard the Packets on 145.825

I have been monitoring the packet frequency 145.825 for a few close passes to home and I did not hear the digi-repeater. Does anyone know if it is turned on?

Eggbeater antenna

I have been working on a uhf eggbeater antenna for about a week and cannot get the thing to tune worth squat. As a matter of fact it won't tune at all. I used the plans posted by k50e and am at a loss as to what is causing it. I used 3' of shedule 40 pvc pipe as a platform, made the loops the right size, used rg/62 (93ohm) for the phasing line at 5.08"" and fed it with good rg8 coax. It will do nothing. Any hints or clear plans would be a help. Thanks
