Tahoe Repeater trouble

We are having interment and worsening problems with the antenna/coax feeding the 442.300 repeater in Lake Tahoe.

We have plans as soon as the weather breaks to go investigate the issue but in the meantime use of the repeater will be subject to environmental conditions. The worse the wind and precipitation levels the worst the crackling  on analog and choppy audio on digital will be.
