The South Devon area is lucky to have a number of repeaters that hams can use.
GB3TR is a 2 metre band FM repeater serving Torquay and South Devon. It is situated on the outskirts of the town and accepts inputs on 145.050 and outputs on 145.650
A 94.8 Hz CTCSS tone is necessary to access the repeater.
GB3TR is provided and maintained by a group of amateurs from the TARS club although it is available for use by all radio hams.
GB3TQ is a 70cm band analogue / digital repeater serving much of South Devon. It is co-located with GB3TR. It accepts input on 438.4875 and outputs on 430.8875.
A 94.8 Hz CTCSS tone is necessary to access the repeater and is recommended for receive on analogue radios. GB7TQ uses the new System Fusion C4FM digital voice mode as well as conventional FM.
GB7TQ was purchased by a RARC member, Steve Daniels G6UIM, and is maintained by a group of hams from both RARC and TARS.
MB7VT is an APRS digipeater / igate that operates crossband from 70cms to 2m located at the TQ/TR site. It outputs and receives APRS data both via RF and the Internet.
It is operated & maintained by a group of hams from both RARC and TARS. Steve Daniels G6UIM is the NoV holder for MB7VT.
The official repeater keeper for all the above is Bill G8XST.
