The Scottish Borders Repeater Group

SBRG provides the amateur radio community with three repeaters, GB3SB and GB3HK at Lindean, near Selkirk, and GB3BT near Berwick. These cover a large region of southern Scotland, serving mobile users on three of the main north-south routes, and also supporting users of low power portable and fixed 2m and 70cm equipment in the many VHF radio `holes' in the Borders.

Details of the repeaters are as follows.

Due to a massive increase in charges by NTL, owners of the Lindean mast, SB and HK closed on 31/3/99. Fortunately, a new site very close to Lindean has been found, and these repeaters reopened in May 1999. Coverage is expected to be less due to reduced antenna height.

The operation of these repeaters is supported entirely by member's subscriptions.

The group's AGM is normally held on the last Sunday of April (the weekend before the Kelso rally) ar the Focus Centre, Galashiels, starting at 1400.

For information you can contact one of the officers, currently:

The memebership subscription is £ 12.50 per year.

The Group is affiliated to the RSGB
