DON'T FORGET TO MENTION WR
We have added a Blog page to the site to keep you up to date about GB3WR. You are welcome to post comments .
Thank you for taking the time to find us. The WR website is full of useful information about the group and the repeater. WR is a dual mode 2m repeater that is located on the Mendip hills in Somerset. At a height of 1000 feet above sea level, WR covers a large area of the south west and south Wales.
In the autumn of 2015 the group installed a new Yaesu repeater on site to replace an old repeater that was starting to show its age. The new "box" has improved the receive sensitivity and audio throughput.In October 2016 we installed a new repeater controller that takes over from the internal Yaesu controller.This now makes the repeater behave as a conventional repeater should with courtesy tones and a hang time. In addition to the yaesu repeater we also have a Simoco TSF2025 FM repeater. The Simoco was installed in July 2017 to provide a more reliable and flexible FM repeater.Have a look at the "about" page on our site for the full run down of the repeater.
We are in the process of putting together our own coverage map made up of reports from our users.If you would like to be apart of the map please use the form at the bottom of the coverage page. Include a bit about your station.If you are mobile or a base station your contribution is appreciated.The map is located on the coverage page.
If you are interested in VHF propagation you will find a link to a very useful prediction map on the coverage page above our map.
