As of 10:30 this morning (30th December) GB3MP was switched off and will remain off air for a minimum of 2 weeks. Why was it turned off? Sustained abuse, foul language, threats etc etc. If genuine operators had refrained from rising to the bait, and hadn’t gone back at the abusers then we might not be in the situation we are.
Be aware that IF and WHEN the repeater is turned back on again if the abuse and language etc resume it will go off for a minimum of 4 weeks and worst case might end up being turned off permanently.
