FM Analogue Repeater and Beacon. GB3SE is a 23 cm Microwave Repeater and Beacon (co-sited with GB3ST and GB3VT). At QRA locator IO83WA, 273 metres, 887 feet above sea level in the City of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. United Kingdom.
GB3SE first became operational from its original site in September 1985 and then from its present location in 1996. GB3SE also shares its location with GB3VT on 2 metres and GB3ST on 70 cm.
The Repeater and Beacon Transmits on 1297.075 MHz and Receives on 1291.075 MHz, UK channel number RM03.
Both the Transmitter and Receiver use full encode and decode Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System (CTCSS) at a frequency of 103.5 Hz. To access the repeater facility and obtain full talk through function, either a tone burst of 1750 Hz or CTCSS at 103.5 Hz can be used. The repeater / beacon will not transmit its CTCSS of 103.5 Hz unless full repeater mode has been activated. Thus if using a transceiver that has a tone activated squelch function, it is possible to monitor the repeater part of GB3SE without having to listen to the continuous transmission of carrier whilst the equipment is in Beacon Mode function.
