26/02/16 Friday: GB7WB D-Star back in service now that our new UHF circulator has arrived.
21/02/16 Sunday: GB7FI finally joined us on the Phoenix DMR network.
It was worth this most anticipated but delayed move.
Its great to have a little old DR-3000 UHF backup service for our main phoenix state of the art SLR-5500 repeaters
Imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery!
We do think its great that others want to follow in what we have led the way.
GB3WE & GB7IT were the very first DMR phoenix repeaters in the South West and will always be the best.
GB3WE was put back into service last night and is working very well on the phoenix network.
The new repeater is fantastic and we are very pleased that we upgraded to the new Motorola SLR-5500.
Some more adjustments need to be made on the duplexer today, so there will be interruptions to service.
18/02/16 Thursday: Today our group is even bigger and better than it was yesterday! We can’t wait for tomorrow!
Weston repeater group …. doing what repeater groups do, only better!

“Dear sir can you please turn down the audio output of gb3we its too loud and is blocking out the repeaters here in wellington down to exeter, a lot of stations are moaning about bleed over to other channells and its 50khz wide here a friend of mine in weston says its 200khz says he cant work 2m with it.
Thank you g0doi david”
As GB3WE is a commercial £2000 Motorola DMR repeater set up at the Motorola factory and checked with our two test sets, I can assure you that its output is perfect and due to the digital nature of the repeater, it does not have an audio output to turn down!
Please stick to WR, as I believe that still has an audio output for you to listen to!??
Are these people really what amateur radio has come down to!?
