Users of the Cambret Hill Repeater

For many years the D&G Raynet Group has provided a repeater at Cambret Hill primarily for use in emergencies but also for the use of radio amateurs in general.

The repeater costs are funded by the activities of the D&G Raynet members — such as offering radio support at local cycle events, car rallies, marathons etc., for which donations are received. The D&G Raynet members also pay an annual membership fee.

Ongoing costs include electricity, insurance, a building to be maintained, equipment to be maintained and replaced as required.

Times are changing. Events have reduced to only 4 this year and on top of that the electricity bill will rise by a significant sum. In addition the membership of D&G Raynet is decliring, as is the number of events to provide donations.

So how do we keep the repeater alive?

If you are a user of the repeater at Cambret you can help in a couple of ways

1: Become a member of D&G Raynet group which will boost the membership fees and also provide a bigger pool of people for any events. Click here for the website, or find contact information information at this direct link.
