    GB3EY, the EYRG's 23cm ATV repeater has been relocated to the group's Cave Wold Radio Station site.

    At the same time it has been converted to digital operation on 1308MHz, using DVB-S, 2000kS/s, FEC 3/4. The sound channel is 64kb/s MPA but carries no program material at present.

    The antenna is an Alford slot at 25m AGL and the site is 155m ASL at QRA locator IO93RS37ME The ERP is 11W with the current transmitter line-up comprising of a DTX1 modulator and synthesizer, PGA103 pre-driver, PD85004 driver and an old M57762 bipolar Mitsubishi module giving 4.8w RMS output. Shoulders are -45dBc.

    There are no operational inputs but in beacon mode the repeater sends a series of testcards and pictures from East Yorkshire. There is also a coverage map showing the primary (green) and secondary (yellow) coverage. The assumed receive system has an 8m high antenna with a gain of 15dBi.

    Reports would be welcomed; send to clive AT
