At the QTH of GB3LER
GB3LER Has been off air since February 2014 due to an antenna fault and also the unit itself has had major problems internally.
It will remain off air for the immediate future while a decision is made with regard to replacing the Transmitter and Antenna; since they are both in need of extensive work and we are short of funding at the moment.
Due to the future realignment of the 6M beacon network: we feel that any work undertaken should be in accord with the new beacon plan; and the existing unit is not easily convertable due to its construction.
GB3LER will eventually be returned to service once these issues have been addressed.
