GB7PM is co-located on the Mendips with GB3WR and is run by the Mendip Repeater Group.
The Mendip Repeater Group first brought C4FM to the area in 2015.This was hosted on GB3WR and was set up as a dual mode stand-alone repeater. It soon became very popular and it was decided that we would try and get a separate fusion 70cm NOV.However, it took about 18 months and three applications to finally get the approval.
September 17th, 2017 saw the first tests of GB7PM, shortly after getting her on the air we started testing various ways of getting the box connected to the internet via the system Fusion Wires X box. The best solution was to use a 70cm gateway.
As of January 2019 we are in the process of trying a Multi-mode Digital (MMDVM) System currently on Yaesu System Fusion as required by the NOV
We would like to thank the following for their help and support in getting GB7PM on the air.
