Monthly archives for February, 2016
GB3ES has finally returned to service on Wednesday 17th Feb 2016, albeit at a new site location which was in part responsible for a long and drawn out process which resulted in a year and a half delay. This sadly left local amateurs without their favourite 2m repeater, and was sorely missed by those that used it.
Local amateurs and now those much further afield will be able to use GB3ES using new RF hardware and sporting 10w ERP in accordance with the keeper, G6ZZX’s NoV.
Since Wednesday, reports have come in from as far as Margate, revealing that the current site with its greater elevation (~150ft above the old site), means that GB3ES is getting out very well indeed. The repeater has been very busy over the last few days and good signal reports continue to come in.
Long live GB3ES and congratulations to GB3ES’s keeper, Steve Woodgate (G6ZZX) for his perseverance with the whole process who was assisted by Chris M1MBR.
The status of local repeaters, including GB3ES can be found on the right hand column of this site, about halfway down. You might also like to view GB3ES’s record.
