We had this happen once with the RPi with DIAL. Sometimes computers hang-up, and if they are in transmit mode... oh well. We are installing a simplex radio with a simple controller that will allow us to  manually reboot the processor; an independent watchdog timer would work as well, but we also want to use the controller to report temperature.

When we found out about it we immediately tuned to the frequency and found that the repeater was indeed locked open. I had Mark run out to the repeater site to shut it down and bring home the allstarlink box..
