GB7SJ Fusion/Analog repeater has had a new Yaesu DR1X repeater installed and coverage seem to be better than before. Feedback would be welcome and please note that at the moment the Yaesu DR1X is running without a repeater controller so K tones and other nice features are temporary not available. Testing will be done on the suspect repeater removed and hopefully a conclusion will be reach and posted here. Wishing all the Northwich Repeaters users a more reliable QSO on GB7SJ. Kind Regards Stuart /M0WTX23-Feb-17
POWER LIMITATIONS IN 70CMS
With the significant increase in numbers of 70cms digital voice repeaters which have inputs at the low end of the band the ETCC have been reminded to highlight the power restrictions which apply to 430 - 432 MHz. The maximum peak envelope power in this part of the band is 40W (16dBW) effective radiated power (ERP) for Full and Intermediate Licensees and 10W (10dBW) for Foundation Licensees. Given that many modern mobiles can run 50Watts power output to high gain collinears it is very easy to exceed these levels so please take care to keep your power to the minimum required and certainly never above the limits mandated in your licence.

Repeaters, Gateways, Nodes etc are licensed by means of a "Notice of Variation" (NoV) on an individual's amateur radio licence.
A Second NoV will CANCEL the effects of the first Variation in effect removing authorisation to operate the Repeater/Gateway.
Most repeater NoV's expire at the end of March 2017. The RSGB is inviting early renewals for a further 3 year term.
The RSGB are agents of Ofcom for the issue of NoV's and managing of the frequencies and networks.
