And now it’s off again….MB7FM off air

The Tring ‘parrot’ repeater has been quite handy for testing the MyDel-5189 70MHz rig that I’m currently reviewing. Tried to call it up on Tuesday evening without any success, so I wondered if the aerial had fallen off, but I was still able to work some local stations at the usual signal strength.

I checked with Selim, 2E0CKF in London to see if he was hearing MB7FM and he wasn’t either. So looks like there’s a problem.

Hopefully MB7FM will be back again before long – it’s a nice aid to 70MHz FM activity in the South-East. In the meantime, it’s always good to make simplex QSOs, in any case.
