GB7GL - D-STAR for Gloucestershire

A new 70cms D-STAR repeater, GB7GL has opened at Edge Hill in the Forest of Dean (IO81SU). The repeater output is on 439.712 and the input on 430.7125.

This should provide great coverage in the Cheltenham and Gloucester area. I'll be intrigued to see if any RF creeps over the hill into Oxfordshire, but I'll certainly keep an eye on the frequency when I'm in and around the Gloucestershire area.

The plan is for the repeater to be hooked up to the MIDSTAR reflector, comprising of a number of D-STAR repeaters in the Midlands area, though you can connect it to other reflectors, should you wish.
