GB3DQ

Hello, I run GB3DQ from home here in SE Cornwall. The repeater has run very successfully over the last six years or so. I use two Motorola GM380's for TX & RX on 70 Cm's with a 7.6 meg split. The radios are working fine, the problem I have is that over a period of time the duplexer/circulator has gone out of tune and was causing breakthrough. I took this to a friend locally, and he retuned it, but I'm afraid to say that the receive side of the repeater is now very poor. So what am I looking for, either somebody who has the ability to tune or repair said duplexer. The other option would be a different duplexer tuned to the repeater split. Any help would be most appreciated. Kind regards, John, G1YDQ.

MB6INK

Steve (2E0SGG) is still looking for any support for a Fusion (C4FM) repeater in the Rochester area of Kent. He is proposing changing mode from DMR to Fusion for MB6NK and MB6INK. He reports MB6NK getting use on D-Star but MB6INK is not being used.

Transmit filter had burnt out. It was a helical filter that had been tuned beyond rated specs to avoid interference with GB3LE. Replaced with lower loss cavity filter that exceeds original specs in all respects. See website for more details.
