GB3JS FULLY OPERATIONAL

The Lowestoft and Gt Yarmouth Repeater Group would like to report that our 70cms voice analogue repeater GB3JS was pressed into service from its new site in Gt Yarmouth. This is really exciting news for the Radio Amateurs along the East Coast as we have just recently lost our site for GB3YL and GB3LO. Reports received so far are very good and I hope that the Amateurs on our East coast will make good use of it. I would like to thank Mervyn G4TAD and James M0JGX for all their hard work in getting the repeater on air. We welcome any signal reports. /M1TES

DMR Key Features

Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) preserves full channel width and divides it into alternating time slots that can each carry an individual call.
Motorola maintains that two-slot 12.5 kHz TDMA-based systems (providing 6.25 kHz equivalency) is more efficient.
This means that two separate conversations can be handled by the one repeater, on the same frequency but on a different "channel".
TDMA technology for narrowband 12.5 KHz (6.25 equivalent-6.25e) provides advantages of:
  1. feature flexibility
  2. lower equipment costs
  3. longer battery life
  4. future-readiness
  5. spectrum efficiency
