As part of the Cambridgeshire Repeater Group plans our FSK Regenerative Repeater GB7PT has been taken off air for engineering work to change the base station equipment. It is hoped to return GB7PT to service within a few weeks, subject to other commitments.
Due to a duplexer fault, GB7PI has been reconfigured to operate with two-aerial working, and as such the TX aerial in use is the tri-band aerial used by GB3PX at a lower position on the same mast. Typically we're seeing around a 8-10dB reduction in received signal. RX performance remains as before. We hope to have it back to normal soon.
