The repeater was intended to be sited at the G3NWR Wirral ARS club premises at Ivy Farm, Arrowe Park, Birkenhead. Unfortunately, a few months ago, it became clear that our time there was limited due to the decaying state of the council-owned buildings. The club is in the process or relocating to new premises which are further than the 2km relocation distance allowed by the NOV. The new premises are at 4m ASL and hemmed in by hills, so not the best location for microwaves.
The search is on for a repeater site within the 2km relocation distance. The advantages of having the repeater on your own premises with low additional running costs and 24/7 access will be difficult to match. At this stage, I'm not very hopeful that the repeater will become operational.
The new G3NWR club premises will be offically opened on Saturday September 16th at 11am. All are welcome.
