Much seems to be going on at Wythall Radio Club just at the moment – but then news does seem to come in fits and starts…

Better D-STAR coverage for our local area!

Better D-STAR coverage for our local area!

The latest snippet for you is that we have yet another repeater cleared for operation.

This time it is GB7SO, the new D-STAR repeater for Solihull & Wythall.  Based half-way between the two towns, it should provide good coverage of the area and also the M42/M40 links. GB7SO is an update of the simplex gateway we have been running for the past year but will soon provide talk-through coverage as well as links to the wider D-STAR world via the Internet.

We will, of course, let you know when this and its sister D-STAR box GB7DG in Bromsgrove is on the air. Hopefully it won’t be too long away now…

Meantime, keep an eye on the pages for GB7SO and GB7DG by clicking the links…
