Greetings from G4EID to all, have a good one!

- Node 5240
(434.475MHz) will relay audio from NASA for the duration of STS-116.
The audio is provided by both the IRLP and EchoLink networks and
will be available during crew waking hours.

29th May 2006
- As notified on
the 6th May, MB7ISP has now been closed down. Users are asked to use
GB3OA or one of the other simplex gateways available in the area.
6th May 2006
- Some time in
the next few days, MB7ISP on 145.3375MHz will be closed down. The
main reason is that it's difficult to support both a link into the
local Southport repeater, and a simplex gateway only 300kHz away.
It's fine so long as both links aren't in use at the same time, but
when they are, it's not really workable. In addition, I'd like to
concentrate activity onto the new local 2M repeater
GB3OA. If users still want to
use a simplex gateway rather than the repeater, there's still both
the 70cm and 4M gateways available here at G4EID. For those that
want to stay on 2M, there's Graham G7EVY's node (5057) available in
Tarleton. My thanks to all the users who have frequented my 2M node
over the years, all the facilities will still be available on
GB3OA, its IRLP and EchoLink
node numbers are the same (5302). I'm undertaking some aerial work
over the next few days, part of this work will result in one less 2M
vertical, once that's done, MB7ISP on 145.3375MHz will go off air.
6th April 2006
- Southport's new
2M repeater, GB3OA, is now internet linked. It's node number on both
IRLP and EchoLink is 5302. Its status has been included on the node
list here at G4EID, since that's where the linking currently runs
from. For further information on the repeater, please visit

- Many thanks to
everyone that came along to the Windmill last weekend, I think we're
all agreed we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. We will hopefully
have another one before too long, three years is definitely too long
a wait :-)
- Looks like I'll
be over for Dayton again this year, for anyone that's going, I look
forward to seeing you there!
