Long Island Monitoring Association
From Ed  (KC2AYC) : The Long Island Monitoring Association went belly up, mainly  because the 146.805 repeater has problems for over 2 years now at the  antenna site and it killed the net.

The group has now splintered off in to two active  e-mail reflectors, ScanCom and the Uniden-bc780 Users Group We also still hold monthly gatherings on the 3rd Thursday of the month  at Fudruckers Restarant on Merrick Avenue in Westbury, Long Island.
