GB3KT Closing down.

Post by G8ADM » Sun Nov 14, 2010 3:48 pm

I was very sorry to hear that GB3KT, the Kent ATV repeater, will be closing down in April 2011. The repeater is 23cm analogue.
This close down is apparently due to lack of membership and funds.
The full report is on their web site: http://kentelevisiongroup.org/
GB3KT has not used any streaming facilities or provided any information to the BATC or to this forum.

I do hear of the possibility of another group in Kent wishing to build a digital only repeater, time will tell, good luck to them.

Dave.

GB3KT was permanently closed down on Easter Monday, 25th. April 2011. This was due to lack of funds caused by falling membership of the Kent Television Group.
There are no plans of which I am aware for a digital ATV repeater in Kent, indeed for any ATV repeater.
An overview of ATV in Kent can be found on my website http://www.qsl.net/g4ayt on page 7.
