Stanley Crook Repeater
The radio club was successful in its application for a VHF voice repeater, sited at the club's meeting venue, Stanley Crook Village Hall (see our Location page). Our repeater keeper is Bob G0OCB.
Following Ofcom’s issuing of a new NoV allowing dual mode operation, Digital System Fusion and FM will be relayed as received over the repeater active from 16th February 2015.
All users of GB3CD should now ensure Tone Squelch (118.8) is activated when monitoring the repeater for FM signals to avoid digital signals from GB3CD opening receivers.
Thanks to Liam Dobinson 2W0LDQ for this video demonstrating Wires-X through GB3CD.
Many thanks to Lee at LAM Communications for sponsoring our repeater.
The repeater is connected to the Echolink internet linking system (node number 412936). Thanks goes to Andy G6VTR for supporting this facility during the initial stages, and now to Brian G7OCK for maintaining the current link.
Our repeater approximately covers South down to Yorkshire and North up to well beyond Newcastle-upon-Tyne. At present, we don't have any technical-based coverage estimates. Our location provides a superb take-off point in just about all directions and is an excellent spot for a repeater.
