It looks like you are making it to an IGate, but you haven't been heard
for about 15 hours. Your last heard beacon was gated by KC5YSM-2 about
16 hours ago..

Counting the dog (& the CW stations) it looks like there are 50 stations
within 65 miles of your location. It looks like the real "problem" is that
K5LSU-5, which gated most of your beacons earlier, has been AWOL for about
17 hours or so. See http://www.qrz.com/detail/K5LSU, and
http://www.qrz.com/detail/N5IB. James is the trustee for K5LSU. According
to qrz.com his email address is giamman @ rouge.phys.lsu.edu. Perhaps you
could fire him a note or see if you can find a phone number for him.
