Nope. Its some prat on there playing the joker. Also cutting across proper users and holding open the repeater as well.

Some of the shops are affected as well on their simplex channels, so the person is local. One shop has already replaced their radios with mototrbo, and I hear another big retailer will be doing so by the end of the month.

All the voice channels are recorded by the BCRP, so hopefully they are stupid enough to say some stuff.

Already the BCRP is talking about going digital to stop this happening. Sad that one persons actions will spoil the fun listening for all of the rest of us in the future.

Although, saying that, I've not heard anything unusual for the last week..... Hopefully they've stopped for good!!

Yes still in use, but they are digital - you are using a digital capable receiver aren't you ?

Yes I have a Retevis RT3 and have added the freq to a codeplug but even though I get a good signal no reception, so wondering if they are using encryption now ?

How far away are you, they are using low power on the repeaters, so half way down North street and you loose it.

Weren't using encryption when we were in town last week.

Well I can get a signal a few miles away and close to where I live with a 70cm 6 element yagi...can you send me the info you have for it for the codeplug please...don't I need to know the colour code or are you using hacked firmware ?

colour code 7 on both repeaters.

With a handheld you loose ch3/4 almost as soon as you are out, they are in a downfire antenna.

1/2 is better, but only down to the seafront and half way down North st.

Are you saying you can get a decent signal from their repeaters, in analogue (I find this to be the easiest way to ensure I am getting a good signal into a radio, then I know its just me with the incorrect digital settings).

What else needs to be added for the channel info ? Repeater slots 1 or 2 ? I only have added ch3/4 at the moment. With my yaesu vx-2r I was getting a good signal well away from the seafront, it was endstop there and 50% well into London road

On repeater 1:
ch1 is slot1, ch2 slot2
Repeater 2:
ch3 is slot 1 ch4 is slot 2

I don't know if you need group codes on your radio. I use a Motorola radio, so aren't familiar with yours.

ch1 is the busiest. ch 3 is hardly used.
