The Hope Bagot Repeater Group are sorry to announce that RU74 GB3VN Ludlow 70cms is off air at present due to an electricity supply fault as the site host Chris, M0MTS had an issue with a JCB and the buried supply cable. He apologises profusely! Spares have been sourced and it is hoped to rejoin the cable in time for Easter. Dave Porter G4OYX, Repeater Keeper GB3VN
A further two 70cm DMR repeaters have been licensed for immediate operation. GB7ED will cover the Exeter area and GB7SN is at Sheffield. Both will be found on DVU54
GB3PY turns 40 years old in March 2015. To celebrate this event, that of the first ever UHF voice repeater in the UK being licensed, GB3PY will be using the callsign GB40PY for the rest of the year, with immediate effect. Ofcom have issued a "Special Event Station" NoV in the same way that they issued GB40PI to celebrate the first VHF Amateur Voice Repeater in the UK.
The Cambridgeshire Repeater Group will be running a number of events to commemorate the anniversary of PY's "birth". More details as they become available will be published on the CRG website - www.cambridgerepeaters.net
