Back in 2013, the ARRL signed an agreement with the FCC to allow a Nebraska non-profit, NFCC coordinate the repeater frequencies in Nebraska.
This organisation is now legally defunct, meaning that the local repeater community have no way to change their collective organisation as the ARRL does not engage with coordinating activities.
The issue is highlighted because in Florida a change in the law has put repeater frequencies at risk.
Whilst the ARRL has given notice of revoking the original Memo of Understanding in 2016, the agreement is still in place.
