GB7CH… It’s Alive!

As of 7th Dec 2020, a new signal was present on 70 cms band with the arrival of GB7CH, a new multimode digital repeater for South East Essex and East London.

Originally installed at Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker by George Smart M1GEO and designated GB7KH, it has been repurposed to provide a better coverage for those in the footprint of the coverage centred on Tomswood Hill in Hainault on the edge of Chigwell in Essex.

Please check on the Technical page for all the blurb, and status updates will be posted on here and any news about development work which is going to take place.

When using dynamic talk groups / rooms / etc, please release them after use
Brandmeister DMR: Please key TG 4000 to reset
YSF: Please check your radio manual or if you have a DTMF mic, try pressing the star button.
D-Star: Unlink from reflector as per your radios instructions.


The repeater is currently in a commissioning and extended test phase so please bear in mind that it will be subject to occasional reboots or downtime as things are modified and hopefully improved.

The plan is to continue to offer all three popular modes of: DMR (Brandmeister) Yaesu Fusion and D-Star unless there any issues that require the service to be pared back.
