GB3FT hopefully tempory off air

Post by g8ckn » Sun Dec 14, 2008 12:05 pm

GB3FT went off air in Nov 08. As will GB3HV, same new site owner, this was due to site rent etc rocketing to £3500 pa.(commercial rate). Even after re-negotiation, with them adding a separate electricity charge and the outstanding rigger's cost to raise the antennas onto the main mast, it was just not viable.
A new (non commercial) site is being investigated with not as large a coverage but still capable of 'linking' other repeaters - when GB3HV gets a new site/
