Essex gets 2m D-STAR Amateur Radio Repeater

As of Saturday 18th July 2015 the Essex 2m repeater GB7TE was connected to the amateur radio D-STAR network

It took over a month of configuring and tweaking to get GB7TE successfully configured and the repeater actually went on air on Friday 17th July 2015 but wasn't connected to the network until the following day.

Icom donated the repeater modules and the Martello Tower Group supplied the server, cavities, broadband and site.
