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.
Today I received the sound cards with the CM108AH chip & G7RPG modifications. GB3JC is now connected to Allstar with node number: 49025. I will shortly post the Allstar commands as these are different from standard EchoLink codes. It’s important to remember that we still have EchoLink on GB3JC, we now have the best of both worlds.
You can check the node status here: GB3JC NODE STATS
Just a quick update, the GB3JC repeater is now running on the new homebrew J-pole antenna.
Here you can see the test position, yes Tech the cat is watching over proceedings!
I’m happy to report the antenna has an SWR of 1.5 on 430.900Mhz! I’m happy with that!
She’s now up in the air:
