2m NOV Granted!

Yaesu system Fusion Simplex Gateways

2m NOV Granted!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are doing well?

We have done it! We have been granted the NOV for 2m so we now have both 2m and 70cms NOVs in place, At the moment we have just got the 70cms gateway operational and we are looking at getting the equipment needed but may take some time. We may change the gateway to 2m instead of 70cms in the near future to get a better reach to people but we will post the information on the outage page.

 

Thanks again to everyone who has been supportive of the gateway and we have heard some great feedback about it, we will continue to build on the fusion network and eventually there will be both bands side by side so more people can access the node at the same time.

 

Other news is, I have finally got my antenna outside! Its huge! I will be adding pictures of the install on our pics page very soon! Wayne and I also went to the Thornton Cleveleys Amateur Radio Club for the first time on Monday and really enjoyed it and met some great people! I have ordered my kit and book needed for the Intermediate exam!

73 for now
