Tim (G8BXQ) has decided to call time on Keepers duties and put in an NOV application on the 26 Jan 2016 to transfer keeper responsibility to Rich (G0ZEP). A new NOV was subsequently issued on the 12 Feb 16. Those involved with the running of GB3DT would like to thank Tim for his continued hard work and dedication to GB3DT over the years.
The repeater has operated without incident since all the work was carried out on GB3DT during the summer of 2013, however the interference problem is still continuing to cause annoyance and consternation to those stations monitoring the repeater all day. Unfortunately as a ‘lodger unit’ we are not really able to do anything about it the interference as its caused by the ‘Primary User’. The only real effect on DT is to hold open the squelch and thanks to ‘capture effect’ even the weakest of signals can usually get over the top. However, the ultimate plan is to make GB3DT CTCSS only and this will hopefully sort out the problem once and for all.
