The South West Cluster of 70cm DMR Repeaters
GB7KT and GB7MJ are part of the South West Cluster of 70cm DMR Repeaters.
Each repeater is supported by it's own Group, Club, Sponsor/s or by individual donations.
The Cluster is not connected to either the DMR-Marc, Phoenix or BrandMiester Networks.
It provides an independent and SIMPLE TO USE network that takes advantage of the DMR technologies' "roaming" capability, a major function offered by DMR, which none of the other networks are able to take advantage of.
By simply activating the "roaming" capability of your radio, when travelling around a region, your radio does all the work for you, by automatically switching you to the appropriate repeater for the area you are in. Much like a mobile phone.
If you represent a Club, Repeater Group or are an individual who would be interested in helping us to develop the South West Cluster into Devon and Cornwall, or locally, please feel free to make contact with us via the form on the "Contact" page of this web site, or by contacting any of the other Cluster repeaters keepers.
The South West Cluster 950 Net, is held every SATURDAY evening between 7 & 8 pm.
The net covers the whole of the current South West Cluster of linked and operational repeaters, which currently consists of: GB7AA, GB7BS, GB7CW, GB7DR, GB7JB, GB7KT, GB7SD. Once fully operational, GB7ED, GB7MJ and GB7YS will join.
We hope you can join us .........
The above map image shows the potential SWC coverage, based on the 10 fully operational repeaters, the published DR3000 repeater specification, and a signal level =>1uV with 70% availability for <5% BER. The actual coverage and performance achieved by any individual user is of course dependant upon that users actual location, topography and installation, as is the case with all VHF and UHF communications. Our thanks to Mark G4SDR for allowing us the use of the base coverage map.
