That is the rumor, although I have not heard that from John or Paul directly. The Springs-Denver link is still working and it seems the Akron repeater was still working. I assume that means the west-east link is broken, Breck is the pivot.
I wouldn't put a lot of faith in the website, it still has photos of the old Breck site, which was changed a couple of years ago now. They had to pull down that old metal building last summer.
