2m  -  Analogue FM  -  103.5 Hz ctcss  -  25w ERP  -  Single 4 dBD Collinear  -  Output: 145.7875 MHz  -  Input: 145.1875 MHz

Located near the Town of Mere in South Wiltshire  -  Loc: IO81vc  -  745 ft (227m) asl.

Operational since November 2007

The system and its upkeep is funded solely by donations from our users and supporters.

The systems are powered by Solar Panels and a Wind Turbine, which operate at a High Voltage.

This is regulated down to 24 volts d.c. to power the repeater as well as other site facilities, such as the CCTV equipment which operates 24 hours a day.

The site also hosts the GB3USK 23cm Beacon.

Obviously, at a site with a relatively easy unauthorised public access, safety and security is a priority. We therefore try to do our bit.

A couple of examples are shown opposite.

We have signs warning not to climb the tower.  Even though we have installed anti-climbing panels, idiots will always be idiots.

We have also provide warnings as to the use of 24 hour CCTV facilities on the site.

The Keeper - Dave G3ZXX

Licensed in September 1969, with the call sign G8CYV.  Upgraded to G3ZXX in January 1971.  Currently the keeper for GB7JB as well as GB3JB.  Principle activity is Repeaters, HF Digital modes and building antennas systems.  I also provide a broad range of Amateur Radio talks and demonstrations to local radio clubs.

The Money Man - Peter M0ACD

I obtained my licence in 1995 after attending night school at Sony in Basingstoke. I spent most of my working life with British Railways, up to and following privatisation, finishing in 2015. My hobbies include railways, all transport and amateur radio..

The Much Missed - Clem G3UGR.

Clem was associated with amateur radio for many years.  He was the keeper for GB3YS for most of it’s life, and was significantly involved in the building and development of the GB3JB repeater module.  In terms of personality he was a very gentle man who was the foil to the G3ZXX character.  We worked very well together, and he is greatly missed by all who knew him.
