GB3EK Abuse

The GB3EK repeater will now be off air for extended periods due to abuse from a well known licenced amateur.

I can only apologise to regular users but it’s a choice between shutting the repeater down for extended periods or removing it completely.

If the known abuser would like to have a discussion with me, the keeper, in confidence about any issues they have then they are very welcome to contact me using the form on this website.

  3. I’d like to know when the repeater will be back up also, as I am just about to get back into radio after years of radio silence, and an hoping to be able to talk to others on it any day now.

      The repeater is off air again due to an unlicensed user accessing it. As the keeper, I am following OFCOM advice and will continue to close the repeater down whenever unlicenced access or abuse is heard. I am sorry for the inconvenience this causes regular users but the only other alternative is to remove the repeater from air completely.

    I keep trying to use the repeater to talk to people but it’s constantly being turned off, I am a new (well newly back into) ham and would like to be using it to gain confidence with it, but it’s super difficult if it’s always being turned off.

    Hi. i have just come across this page and see that you are having a lot of bother with non licensed operators , we had the same down this way in Hastings GB3HE the repeater keeper took it away from site , we managed to talk to the keeper and put fusion in to the mix and he has agreed to put a fusion box up there ,, on the bases it will stay on analogue for most of the time but it will be a no tolerance repeater if we get any problems we go straight on to fusion and lock the repeater on fusion for a while and then drop down to fm again .. people will not like listening to hash i e Fusion and most of the idiots that do this type of thing will not get a fusion radio anyway
