@K6CDO: I've heard that, but to date I have never heard San Marcos dispatch out of 20 or 30, 20 always patched into 90 covering both.
Is there any system as to which TG they will be on when they patch, or is it just random or up to the dispatchers each night they do it? (Hard to keep a feed going with San Marcos dispatch if you don't know where they will be!)
