GB3HE 70cm Hastings Repeater – Change of frequency

logo_rilgesPaul, M0LRE has been in touch to let us know that GB3HE, the local 70cm repeater in Hastings which is managed by RILGES, will be changing frequencies soon.

Dave G8PUO informs us that following the recent issue of GB3HE wide spacing NoV, moves the project forwards and is now in the process of  procuring the new parts which include the repeater itself, a power supply, filters, logic, Echolink PC (although this will not be enabled from day one), Preamp and GSM control.

In the very near future, Dave and the RILGES working party will be putting these items into place resulting in what will surely be a superbly featured repeater which as many already know, has become a bit of a favourite amongst local users.

Arguably the most important bit of news it that there will be a frequency change, so don’t forget to jot the details down and get the memory programmed in your handy or base rig ready for the switchover. See you on HE!

GB3HE New Frequencies

Channel RU74 (spacing 7.6 MHz)
Output 430.9250 MHz
Input: 438.5250 MHz
CTCSS 103.5 Hz (same as current)
