GB3VN

The Hope Bagot Repeater Group, based in Ludlow are pleased to announce that following the issue of the NoV on 20 June 2015 that from 25 June GB3VN is on the air with a new Yaesu Fusion DR1XE unit. Coverage should be identical to the outgoing Tait 800 series equipment. This brings to four the number of Fusion Units in the Welsh Marches and GB3VN joins GB3VM, GB3HC and GB3ZA with this new technology. The next one to watch for is GB3RT from Cwmbran. The HBRG extend their thanks to the ETCC team who processed the application and Ofcom for the NoV.
