Update and refurbishment at GB3TM
GB3TM ATV UPDATE
On the 4th of February
2010 GB3TM the Arfon Repeater Group's amateur TV repeater
located on the north coast of Anglesey in North Wales,
had modifications made to its transmission mode.
A digital transmitter was installed and became
operational on 1316 MHz. This mode is compatible with
commercial satellite TV transmissions, so that users of
GB3TM can receive the digital transmission with standard
free to air satellite receivers.
It is planed that GB3TM will transmit on both analogue
and digital modes, but not both at the same time.
The analogue mode will be the normal mode, with the digital
system being called up by DTMF tones by the user.
At this time, GB3TM is in digital mode 24/7, the
analogue tx will be reinstalled shortly after a much
deserved service following 17 years of operation.
Reports would be welcomed on the new mode by the repeater keeper, David
GW8PBX, link available on the web site".
