The 70cm DMR repeater GB7HRat Heathrow Airport on DVU36 received a site-visit today almost exactly 4 weeks after switch on and was briefly off-air during tests. All appears well in general, timing and roaming parameters have been changed slightly in response to feedback from users. Any feedback from users would be appreciated to GB7HR@G0OXZ.co.uk. Also local intermittent interference on output frequency being monitored; OfCom already investigating interference issue on analogue trunk frequencies on site and likely to be same source. This may be cause of local roaming issues.
Between Sunday 15 Nov and Monday 16th Nov 2015 the home of GB7HM and GB3CR was broken in to. Amongst other items, the main repeater and back ups were stolen.
1 x Motorola SLR UHF Repeater Serial Number 478IRJ0199 (Possible "N" socket has been damaged on rear), 3 x Motorola DR3000 UHF Repeaters S/N's: 484TPJ2905, 484TMQ4302, 484TMG3115. If you have any information leading to the return of these units, please contact us as soon as possible. [more]
Dave, G8PUO reports that GB3EB is now back on air and relocated to its new site in Easons Green, Uckfield. Due to the dire weather conditions we were unfortunately not able to complete the antenna installation, so the repeater is currently operating on a temporary old antenna and much reduced TX power. The antenna will eventually be situated on a 40' tower and based on the predicted coverage map, we should then have improved communications around the south downs from Brighton, Hove, Billingshurst, Horsham, Haywards Heath, Heathfield, Crowborough down towards Eastbourne, Battle, Bexhill and Hastings. Many thanks to James G7VAE and Michael G7VAD
