Repeater maintenance

repeater maintenance

Riviera ARC & TARS both worked together to perform necessary maintenance on the GB3TR VHF repeater. Ian Nelson M0IDP climbed the very tall mast to help with work on the antenna.

Inter club co-operation like this makes for a much easier operation of the many repeaters around Torbay and creates a sense of community for our local hams.

A happy chappy from Dorset

Rick was having problems arranging a Foundation licence exam in Dorset so Riviera ARC rallied around to sort the problem out for him.

Rick was overjoyed to have passed his Foundation licence with 25 out of 26 questions.
Congratulations Rick !
