HF ATU and Linear, all set for a spot of CW operating.
The FT-990 all set for a spell of HF SSB operating. For some reason the majority of club operators still prefer paper logging.
The center of the console contains all of the antenna and amplifier configuration switches, the HF and VHF power and SWR monitoring and the rotator controller.

The club 23cms ATV system. Capable of running full duplex. This systems was originally constucted as the replacement GB3CT TV repeater, but it's licience was declined. We were never given satisfactory technical grounds for this rejection. We now regularly operate this as a manned station and have never received any complaint of interference. If you would like to work us, then please set up a sched. When we have gathered significant evidence of satisfactory operation we will reapply for the repeater licience.
