    I am pleased to announce that yesterday I took possesion of keys giving us access to an additional radio site at High Hunsley. This is a major development for the Group that will allow expansion and protection of existing services.

    The new site is a commercial radio site operated by Maxxwave a company based in Leicestershire who have been extremely generous and helpful in making the site available to us for a nominal peppercorn rent. We will have our own rack, feeders and antennas on the site for 2m and 70cm.

    It is just a couple of hundred yards or so from where our repeaters were located prior to the move to Weedley at the end of the 90s and will be used as a emergency comms repeater site using crossband linking and as a fall-back should Weedley become unavailable.

    We also plan to use it so that we can take over the financially troubled GB7RW 2m D-Star repeater at Octon and move it to Weedley so that it can be integrated into our existing 70cm D-Star repater GB7HU giving us a full D-Star capability for East Yorkshire.

    Pictured below are some of the PMR racks on the site.
