GB7UZ (Lancaster) operational, and Linked to GB7MB on TG9 (TAC9)

To aid coverage of our existing GB7MB repeater around the Bay area, another DMR  MotoTrbo repeater was set up in Lancaster, the date of NoV Issue was on 16th Mar 2016, and it seems to help in some places wher MB was struggling, due to local terrain and limitations we have for sites.

GB7UZ is, Like GB7MB, connected to the Phoenix UK DMR c-bridge, and ‘Talkgroup 9, slot 2’ on both repeaters is linked.. how it works is very simple, and you dont need to do anything at all, You can have a QSO with one station on MB and the other person on UZ. There are further additions planned for expansion to the system, in order to give Total Area Coverage.. maybe on other bands and modes, as the spirit of Amateur radio is experimentation, and so watch this space.

MotoTRBO 2.4a updates


A few nice additions, probably of interest to most Amateurs is the Text to speech and the RSSI tweaks. The Text to speech will be a great leap forwards in accessibility for blind and partially sighted users.
For more info, have a look at twowaydigitalradio.com’s very nice slideshare..
here below is the updated RSSI calibration slide.

Happy bug hunting…
