GB7ML 2m D-STAR node: great coverage

I noticed a D-STAR buzz on 145.6375 the other day when I was testing an analog set and a quick ‘Google’ showed that the GB7ML 2m D-STAR node was now operational from Tring. The coverage map at looks really impressive and showed potential hand-held coverage around our village here.

Sure enough, when I took the IC-E92 along the footpath this morning, I could just about get into GB7ML!

This should prove a great D-STAR resource for increasing activity around the Home Counties and beyond.
