Goodbye GB3IV and hopefully hello GB3FW

Post by G8PUO » Thu Sep 23, 2021 11:04 am

As some of you aware, GB3IV has just been 2nd NoV. This is the end of a long legacy, much history and it was not taken lightly.

The main reason for this is that 23cm in the Portsmouth area is a real challenge, difficult coverage and our proposed site move would not be possible without frequency change. Equally the proposed site had some technical issues with power and internet - which are now both resolved.

With this in mind, a new application has been made for GB3FW, to be located at Fort Widley on Portsdown Hill. Details will be provided via our new website http://scartgroup.co.uk.

Hopefully the application is able to move forward and we can get the new repeater on air ASAP. Hardware is already mostly gathered and purchased, with fingers crossed for the NoV.... Internet on site is now also arranged, so streaming can be provided.

A new section hopefully can be created in this forum, in due course, for GB3FW updates.

You should now find a new section in the forum for GB3FW. Please let me know if you have any problems with it.
