The Isle of Wight Radio Society Tuesday Net

The Society has a Tuesday Night Joint Club Net, starting at 19:30 for 90 minutes on GB3IW.  This is a venture with the Fort Purbrook Amateur Radio Club who normally gather on the repeater at this time.  This net is directed, and alternating controllers are Steve (2E0RQD) for the Society and Graham (M0CYX) for Purbrook.
This net also has a parallel Zoom meeting which continues after the RF net.


GB3IW Will be back very soon.

The repeater has now been taken over by Steve M0RQD and am now looking for the support and donations from its users in the same way that Paul G4IKI did to keep it running.

We hope to have the repeater back on the air within the next 2 weeks or so and have purchased all the equipment from Paul to get it back on the air as soon as we can. Once its back on the air we will obtain the DR2 repeater from Yaesu who have kindly offered to loan us the unit and then we will start the process of swapping it over and also look at adding C4FM to the repeater.

I have had offers of support and will be in touch with you all over the next couple of weeks to form a repeater group so that we can spread the responsibilities. There will be some members from the IOWRS and some that are not (why anyone wouldn't want to be I don't know!)

In the meantime, if you would like to make a donation please use the link below. All monies, great or small are all welcome.

GB3IW was back for a while, now off again!

QuoteHi folks, just to advise that GB3IW is now of air until it is moved to its new location in the very near future 👍👍
Until then both the Tuesday Bramble net and world famous Thursday night net will be via echolink only with the normal concurrent zoom in progress..
Looking forward hearing everyone on the nets!
