PROGRESS UPDATE

Firstly a Happy New Year to our followers and soon to be users.

To update you all as its been very quiet over the past months and we are sorry on no recent updates this is because there is no progress to update on. Unfortunatly we can not give you an On air date yet. As soon as we have it it will be posted on our web site and Facebook pages.

All four repeaters were licenced from the Thornhill site between August and Dec 2017,

Planning permission was granted by SCC by End of 2017,

Only then could we start negotiating with the Landlord.

Early 2018 we get our "Heads of Lease document".

This is checked by Solicitors for both us and the Landlord, at landlords request.

We are at this stage: Several of the Landlords departments need to make "comments" and us agree, and give the "OK"

Once both parties have agreed and signed , then we get the keys

We have all the equipment to fit with the exception of the cables for the duplexer of GB7IV which has been lost by G4HCL's Girlfriend.

It is our intention to run our four repeaters from this site, digitally linked for MT & IV.

Let us make it clear: We are not running a digital repeater in Portsmouth, and don't have any interest in DMR repeaters, despite their locations or callsigns.
