I’m afraid there is indeed something not right with GB3NZ receiver.
After using the system for the past few days, I’ve noticed the
receiver drops out intermittently. I don’t believe this is local
interference, rather an issue with the hardware.
The repeater is
still on air at the moment, you may notice some drop-outs when using
the system. I will arrange to take the system out of service to
After sometime off, GB3NZ returns to service. While we did not find the exact cause of issue, it is believed local interference may have had a role.
We will continue to monitor the system.
Thank you to all for your patience.
We’ve been made aware of an issue with GB3NZ. I will attend site tomorrow to inspect. For now the repeater has been disabled.
A big shout out to Paul at Phoenix today. We’ve found the repeater was using redundant network details. After the IP and port was updated the GB7DS has reconnected.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
May I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I look forward to working you in 2019!
GB3IP – Receives NoV
A big thank you to the ETCC and Ofcom for the fast NOV issue! GB3IP is currently on my bench and should soon be placed into service. GB3IP is designed to cover Redhill and outskirts, south of the M25.
GB7DS – Network issues
I’m aware that GB7DS has had Network issues since early October. I’ve been to site twice and am still unable to find the cause for the outage. Other services on site continue to work as normal. I plan to take the repeater out of service for further investigation. I appreciate users for their patience.
AllStarLink – Expanding & HubNetwork
I’ve been rather busy of the last couple of days. Firstly may I say a big thanks to Steve M0HOY who runs the HubNetwork in the UK. It’s important to note that Peter G7RPG, Steve M0HOY and Stuart M0WTX have really promoted the network. We’ve seen an increase in local activity since the launch of GB3NZ, thus proving; activity breeds activity!
So a big thank you to everyone that runs the network. If I’ve missed anyone out, please comment below and I will happily update this post!
We are receiving very positive comments from local users, thank you for the feedback.
A new server has launched (NODE 2410), this will allow expanding and promotion of the network. You can view the status board here: https://speechless.iax.org.uk/link.php?nodes=2410
