GB DATV Repeaters from NI

Post by 2i0jmt » Tue May 21, 2019 8:55 pm

Hi Folks

Was just wondering if anyone knew of any GB-based DATV repeaters that are able to be accessed from NI?

I understand that I'd probably have to go up a hill to get it, but is it possible? And if so, what kind of antenna do you think would work?

Thanks

Jonny

Hi Jonny,

I don't know but have wondered!

I imagine the antennas used in "nearby" repeaters are omni-directional at best, and directional pointing away from here at worst. And they are the sort of distance you'd need directional antennas both sides along with a bit of luck.

Something in NI or the IoM would work better :)

The one in the North West near Angelsey might be a possibility. It has good coverage out to sea.

We need a repeater for the GB repeaters on the IOM :D

I guess our best luck would have been Scotland, but I don't think there are any outside of England+Wales at this stage?

Cheers

Jonny
