Brief history on the Bromley Repeater Group which manage two other repeaters in the London area.
GB7OK: 2mtr D-STAR - 145.7125 tx - 145.1125 rx - (600 kHz split)

GB3OK: 70cms FM - 430.900 tx - 438.500 rx - (7.6 MHz split) 82.5 CTCSS Access

The original gb3ok repeater has undergone quite a few changes since it came on air. It started life as a 2mtr repeater, and later a 70cms repeater, gb3lk, was added. Recently, the 2mtr gb3ok ceased transmitting when it was replaced with a D-Star repeater which became gb7ok. Shortly after that, the 70cms repeater, gb3lk took over the callsign of gb3ok.

What is D-Star?

The D-STAR system provides digitally modulated voice/data communication and high-speed data access over the air. This project has been developed in collaboration with JARL (Japan Amateur Radio League) and is supported by the Japanese Telecommunications Administration.

D-STAR is an exciting new form of Amateur Radio that compliments other parts of the hobby including VHF, HF operation, Contesting and Satellite communications etc. Utilising digital communication and the Internet, D-STAR allows you to communicate worldwide with other operators who are connected to D-STAR repeaters.
