GB3RT REPEATER - The club is pleased to announce that the repeater and echolink NOV licences are now held by Chris GW0DQW at his request which he accepted, I'm sure we would all like to wish him all the best in his new venture and thank him for all the work he is putting in . Thanks go to Ken MW0YAC for holding the licence since it's inception.
It is linked to echolink and covers analogue and C4FM digital signals. Thanks to all who have got it running Ashley Gareth and Chris DQW and the others who helped us test it.
