GB3ST has had failed cooling fans replaced and is back to full output power for the first time in quite a while. In my case, I can now comfortably listen to ST whereas before it was in the noise. GB3MN has had an additional filter fitted which improves the isolation between the input and output... Continue Reading →
After replacing the antenna and coax run, GB3MP is now back on the air and available for use. A number of repeater group members donated extra funds to the group to help with the replacement antenna. The committee thanks those that chipped in. Your donations are very much appreciated. If you are enjoying using GB3MP... Continue Reading →
Due to the unprecedented situation the world finds itself in I think everyone will agree that holding any sort of AGM is out of the question. Face to face is out of the question and trying to co-ordinate any sort of virtual AGM would be a nightmare. As a holding measure the UKFM Group... Continue Reading →
The Committee have met and discussed and approved the accounts - These have been posted into the Members-Only Facebook Group
A few comments had been received about received signal strength from GB3MP being lower since it was put back on the air. There were no known faults at the time however the keeper would take a look when time allowed. The keeper was on site today for a commercial job and took the time to... Continue Reading →

The repeater keeper will investigate at their earliest opportunity, however, due to current site access restrictions, it may take more than a week. The keeper also notes that the repeater may be HubNet enabled on its... Continue Reading →
GB7MN, the 70cm DMR repeater near the Stockport area is not currently operational. The phoenix network has lost connectivity to the repeater on the 26th March. GB3MN, the 2m fusion connected repeater that is on the same repeater site, is still operational, so the fault appears to be with the repeater itself. Unless something more... Continue Reading →
GB3ST is operating at reduced output power due to a cooling fan failure. The repeater may also exhibit intermittent operation as it will temporarily turn itself off should a critical temperature be reached. Unfortunately, in the current circumstances, a site visit is not possible, so we don't know when normal service will be restored.
Come and say hello to us today at the Nantwich Radioactive rally at Nantwich Civic Hall. We are next to the RSGB tables. We will also be attending the Red Rose rally next week in Leigh.
GB3MN was stuck transmitting an empty carrier over the Christmas and new year period. Attempts to reboot the repeater failed to clear the fault. A software rollback was performed which appears to have fixed the issue. The repeater is fully operational once again.
