    Due to internet issues, GB7HX, TD and LE are off the network until Saturday.

    After a request, and discussion with the keepers concerned, slot 2 - TG9 local on both GB7EL and GB7RV repeaters have been linked. This will hopefully get a little more traffic flowing.

    CORRECTED All OK - There seems to be an issue with GB7EL not connecting to the network at present, so local QSO's only. It's due a firmware upgrade, and so this will be done, and the network issue investigated asap. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Advance warning. We have been advised by the hosting company that they have planned a power upgrade on Thursday 14th evening at 19:00. The system is UPS backed, but if the outage lasts too long, it could see the bridge servers shutdown. All repeaters will continue to operate in standalone mode when the bridge is unavailable, and will reconnect automatically once back.
