On Friday 24th April the GB3WE group ordered a Motorola Mototrbo VHF DR3000 DMR dual-mode Repeater to provide VHF DMR coverage to Weston-super-Mare and beyond!
This is a dual-mode repeater still, so you can access it with a regular narrow band 12.5KHz FM radio using 94.8Hz CTCSS full dencode so that you don’t hear the DMR noise.
Please make sure that you check you radio settings as it is important to only use narrow FM (NFM) on this repeater or you will struggle to be heard!
GB3WE is on 145.6875MHz with a standard -600KHz split (you transmit on 145.0875MHz)
If there are no analogue FM users then you will be able to use your DMR radio.
Because DMR repeaters use two timeslots you can have two completely separate QSO’s taking place simultaneously on the GB3WE repeater without causing any interference to each other!
One conversation taking place on timeslot 1 with the other conversation on timeslot 2
On GB3WE DMR we generally use TimeSlot 1, TalkGroup 9, ColourCode 1
REPEATER DMR-ID: 235145
We now need all of your help as soon as possible to raise funds towards this massive investment in the future of our repeater, GB3WE, and amateur radio.
Please consider donating any amount towards the new repeater equipment, because at the moment only two of the group members have paid for it all!
It was after many requests for the group to provide a DMR radio repeater that we made the decision to invest in a Motorola DMR repeater from www.hamdmr.co.uk where you will get the best DMR deals!
Speak to Adam and ask for a quote on a VHF DMR radio to operate on GB3WE.
Set your DMR radio to 145.6875MHz, -600KHz split, ColourCode 1, TimeSlot 1, TalkGroup 9
We now need your help to fund this new project asap otherwise we will not be keeping it!
