GB7FF Started off just being a digital repeater. I discovered that there was no internet connectivity so I added wires-X, and that was a whole new ball game.
It is amazing how people want a repeater set up, but trying to please everyone it is not possible, so I can only the do the best I can and hope.
Then I found out the frequency I was on was only good for digital not analogue !!, phase 2 was to get new frequencies not just for gb7ff but also for gb7fo.
So the big question was why? The new frequency for gb7ff gave me all modes that I wanted, but I learned that it over lapped the gb7fo frequency, and if anyone knows about Dual Duplexers, you cant do that.
What is a dual duplexer? If you can imagine a single duplexer, now add an other with extra filtering and we end up with a box that is heavy and big and must be tuned for the new frequencies. PHEW!!
