Coming soon - GB3HO - Licensed on RU71, TX 430.8875, RX438.4875, sub tone 88.5hz

On the 24th November 2015 an application was made to the ETCC for forwarding to OfCom to re-establish the long lost UHF repeater for the Horsham area. I have asked for the callsign GB3HO to be allocated for this repeater. No frequency allocation is yet available. coverage map.

The repeater will be located about 5 km S.W. of Horsham town centre. Progress and details can be seen on the ETCC web site.

The control logic is similar to the one used for GB3WS, and will have a speech I.D. and a K as the over signal. Icom IC-F210 transceivers will be used for the transmitter and receiver. These transceivers have been successfully used on GB3NX for the last few years.

The repeater target coverage area is from Horsham towards Midhurst and from Guildford south towards the downs. In other words West Sussex. The antenna system is an omni-directional co-linear array.

As the repeater will have to be vetted by the MOD, who are the primary user of the band, the application may take some time, but of course we will keep our fingers crossed.

Full details and pictures will be posted to the website in due course.
