We operate 2 repeaters for local use in the 70cm FM/Fusion (GB3KL) and 2m FM (GB3KY) bands. These are financed by club membership fees.
The original 2m repeater was built and converted from PMR usage by Derek Chapman G4SJV. It is dedicated to the memories of Cyril G8XTY and Ron G1ONF who did all the hard work to get the repeater licensed. Now sadly silent key in this world, but no doubt listening from elsewhere.

You can use it as a normal analogue repeater or by switching to DN mode on your Yaesu rig (same frequency) link to CQ-UK room.
The WIRES-X gateway is attended use and may not always be available, however the repeater will function 24/7 in the NV mode.
