GB7DE UPDATE

The GB7DE VHF repeater has had the first stage adjustments made to the Rx filtering to reduce the interference from the nearby paging transmitter. This involves a tight band pass filter on the Rx frequency and a fairly wide deep notch filter on the Pager signal Tx. This should make it more accessible to hand held users in the coverage patch. It’s currently running DMR on the BM network at the moment until coverage and receive sensitivity are functioning correctly. The repeater is unconnected by default at the moment but can be linked on Slot 2 TG-9 using your radio keypad. Set your radio for Rx 145.6375 MHz Tx Frequency: 145.0375 MHz Colour Code 1 on the Brandmeister Network. Listener reports can be emailed with the time location, radio and antenna type and comments on the audio quality through the repeater to gb7ee@gmx.com
