Welcome to the website for information on the GB7DD DMR Repeater in Dundee and other DMR Repeaters in Scotland
GB7DD, which is located to the east of Dundee at Broughty Ferry, was the 1st DMR Repeater to go on-air in Scotland for Radio Amateurs. GB7DD is connected via the Brandmeister Network to Reflector 4405 (See activity HERE) on Slot 2 with other DMR Repeaters in Scotland. Slot 1 hosts Talkgroups 91, 92, and 93 as well as Talkgroup 9 which is for local QSO’s.
Currently connected to the Brandmeister Reflector 4405 to link all together is the following repeaters in Scotland:
GB7BB - Banff & Buchan GB7BI - Black Isle GB7DD - Dundee GB7EE - Edinburgh GB7DE - Edinburgh GB7SQ - Dalkeith There are other DMR Repeaters in Scotland which are part of the DV Scotland Group which provide access to the Brandmeister, DMR+, D-Star and Fusion networks and they are not detailed on this website.
This website also provides information on some of the other Scottish DMR Repeaters who are linked into the Brandmeister Scottish Reflector 4405 (see activity HERE). Those repeaters are GB7DD in Dundee, GB7DE and GB7EE in Edinburgh, GB7BB in Banff, GB7BI in the Black Isle and GB7SQ in Dalkeith.
GB7DD was first licensed by Ofcom on 4th March 2014 as a UHF Motorola MotoTRBO DMR Digital Voice Repeater and is owned solely by Martin Higgins MM0DUN.
Everyone is welcome to use the repeater at any time as long as they are a licensed radio amateur!
Coverage is unfortunately pretty limited due to GB7DD being located on the outskirts of Broughty Ferry on the A92 to the east of Dundee where the ground rises to the North and West. All efforts have been made to make this location as viable as possible by adding in a pre-amplifier to the receive circuit, no rent is paid for the site or for the internet and electricity consumption as this is all provided by the Keeper Martin MM0DUN.
A better location is desired to provide a more balanced coverage of the Dundee/Arbroath/North Fife/Perth area. If anyone can suggest a good location to cover the majority of these areas then contact the Keeper Martin MM0DUN who would be happy to hear about it and discuss your suggestions and options.
Thanks for your valued support
Martin Higgins – MM0DUN
Owner and Keeper of GB7DD
