** SCRBG built, operated and maintained the two repeaters GB3SC and GB3SZ at their Bournemouth site for 27 years. Both repeaters are now managed by Dorset RAYNET under the technical guidance of Lawrence M0AUY. They are currently being relocated to a prominent site in central Bournemouth and will undergo a program of modernisation.
To support this work and ongoing viability you are strongly recommended to view the new Repeater websites : gb3sc.htm and gb3sz.htm which will provide technical information and details of how to donate towards funding.
