GB7UL DMR ON AIR
GB7UL the DMR repeater located near Carrickfergus is now on air covering the Greater Belfast area. The repeater is connected to the Phoenix UK core network and carries the standard talkgroups which are listed on cc-3.net. Regional Talkgroup 880 will be of special interest to GI Amateurs as it interconnects all the DMR repeaters in the Province.
