I have available a spare Key KF450 UHF repeater with matching mains power supply tested and working. More details from Dave G7UZN via the contact link on this site. /G7UZN

This new gateway is now licensed and expected to be operational on 1st March 2021. This Gateway is expected to provide coverage of the northern Norfolk Broads. Initially, the Gateway will be linked to CQ-UK 3, which is a DV only Wires-X room. It it hoped that this will provide some activity in the area to listen to, Reception reports are welcomed. /G6NLX

As some of you are aware, the old Ark Helenswood School site (location of the RILGES Hastings Repeaters), is going to be completely developed. Positive negotiation with DfE has concluded we can remain on site but whilst the site is completely redeveloped, and for safety and access reasons, power will be turned off. Although demolition works will take place, the tower block building itself will fortunately remain. However during the extensive site works (which could be for many months - no time details available), this will mean that the RILGES repeaters will be of air. The main mast has now been lowered for safety reasons but left on site. /G8PUO

The Hope Bagot Repeater group are saddened to announce that GB3VM's Repeater Keeper, Glyn Jones G4AIJ, has sadly gone Silent Key. Our thoughts are with Glyn's family. Glyn was a pivotal member of the HBRG and was the driving force in getting GB3VM on the air at Woofferton Transmitting Station - We are pleased to announce that Matt Porter G8XYJ has agreed to take on the repeater keeper position. /G8XYJ
