Busy, busy, busy!
We all lead a busy life, some more than others. GB7MB also has it’s own busy times, some of these are not due to QSO traffic but are caused by little glitches in the global DMR-MARC network. These manifest themselves as all talk groups and time slots being in use, but no traffic heard. During these times the repeater can be used as normal, you will still be heard. Occasionally when we notice this effect continuing for long periods we will remotely disconnect the repeaters network connection to prevent constant TX of noise. DMR-MARC are aware of this problem and are looking into solutions.
