GB3AY - R2 (RV52) 145.650/145.050MHz
1750/103.5 Hz (G) Access
Technical Update - 09/04/2009 - GB3AY has been fitted with new RF and Logic and now has CTCSS access available. The repeater can be accessed either by 1750Hz toneburst or by 103.5Hz CTCSS. The repeater is now also running Narrow deviation so users should set their transmitter deviation appropriately (2.5kHz Max). Note that the logic is configured to require 5 seconds of signal before the repeater will latch fully. More work is planned in the near future which will further improve the RF performance of the repeater. The new equipment is currently on test and may be subject to short outages while adjustments are made to the system.
This repeater is located 850feet asl in the hills North West of the Ayrshire town of Dalry. Coverage is bounded by West Glasgow and Cumbernauld in the North and Girvan in the south. Amateurs from eastern parts of Northern Ireland are also able to access the repeater. It has been operational here since 1994. The output is 12 watts into a 3dB colinear.
Update 30th January 2016 - New Power Supply Installed - Should cure the interaction with GB3WA.
