Theft of MB7TV SSTV Repeater

MB7TV, the SSTV repeater run by the Martello Tower Group is currently off air.

MB7TV is located in a secure, locked box at a very high level, requiring a two section ladder to reach it. However, someone has hoisted a ladder up, ripped the box apart, cut all the cables and stolen the aerial, 20ft support pole, coax, radio, PSU, filter (the repeater was in an industrial area where there was a lot of close by noise), heater, wi-fi link and interface.  All that’s left is the broken box and the brackets the pole was mounted on.

Estimate lost is somewhere between £600 and £700 worth of equipment.
