Antenna system has deteriorated requiring a new antenna.

 

This is the time if you are not a member of the UKFM Group Western to join. I have the help to install the antenna the group needs money to purchased one.

A professional antenna costs in the region of £300.

Repeater was back on-air today, approx midday. 

A very brief break in the electricity supply at site took place just after 17:35 on the 13/01/19. This caused the internet to go down and GB3ST hardware locked up requiring the site owner (Peter) to give the repeater a longer power off & on, all was well.

 

Few! Just over a year since the last break down.

 

Thank you to the site owner Peter.

Mark II logic failed under soak tests so a back up logic system at the last minute has been installed, so we have a different sound.

Repeater now back on site and operational at full power.
