Due to a problem with the present antenna, GB3NQ is now operating a reduced radiation pattern from the antenna. Work is in progress to improve things, because of this reduced service I have decided to stop streaming the repeater until the antenna problem is fixed, please accept my apologies and hopefully the work will soon be completed and GB3NQ will be back to good health soon.

GB3NQ now has a new antenna, the antenna has been changed from an Alford slot, to a four sided antenna using flat plate antennas aimed at the major population centres. Initial reports are excellent with improved signal strength over the previous Alford slot designs, with the added bonus of gain on receive.
Activity night continues to be Wednesday from 1930 Hrs onwards, with streaming on the BATC streamer.
