Gary, M6FCV, got in touch to advise that the GB7CE Fusion repeater in Colchester is dual mode and therefore will support analogue FM. I’ll add it to the codeplugs when vetting has been completed.
The CTCSS tones for both GB3CL Clacton and GB3CE Colchester FM repeaters have changed to 67.0 Hz. I will update the codeplugs hosted here shortly. In the meantime you will need to update your radios if you use GB3CL or GB3CE.
James, G7MLO, has kindly made available a codeplug for the Radioddity GD-77 dual band DMR radio. It is customised for the East Anglia region. You must use CPS version 2.05 and radio software version 3.00.06. Both are available to download from the Radioddity website. You can download a copy from HERE.
Andy, 2E0DIQ, advised that I had TG840 on slot 1 when it should be on slot 2. Now corrected – apologies if it’s caused you problems! I have also added the regional link TG841 to both the zone and scan lists.
GB7WS is now in fully operational and connected to the Phoenix network. The repeater covers Bury St Edmunds and West Suffolk. Many thanks to James, G7MLO, for his efforts in providing this valuable resource for the East Anglia Region. All codeplugs on this site have the repeater programmed in and ready to go.

GB7PP is a D-STAR repeater close to Ipswich. A NoV has recently been approved to convert it to a multi-mode repeater. As I understand it the plan is to use an MMDVM system to enable the repeater to handle D-STAR, Fusion, P25 and DMR modes. When I have the required information regarding which DMR network […]
I’ve recently discovered that OFCOM changed some of the PMR 446 restrictions. Primarily OFCOM have removed the demarcation between analogue and digital frequencies in the 446.0 and 446.2 MHz range. So the 16 channels can be used for either FM or DMR subject to the usual restrictions on power and antenna etc. These changes have […]
Both Motorola East Anglia Region codeplugs have been updated to include the correct talkgroup structure for GB7EB and to reflect the recent move of GB7CL to a site near Frinton On Sea. Also a couple of errors corrected. You can download copies from HERE.
