GB7CC on Cleeve Common near Cheltenham has just been licensed and will be on air ASAP; funds, equipment and weather permitting.
Output frequency: 430.2750MHz, Input frequency: 439.2750MHz (DVU-R22), colour code 2.
To ensure compatibility with GB3UK on the same site, the ETCC have taken the unprecedented step of allocating a new reverse 9MHz split channel (DVU-R22) which ensures there respective inputs and outputs are as far apart as possible to eliminate any possibility of interference.
The ETCC have created five new 'reverse' channels DVU-R20 to DVU-R24, this will allow greater opportunity for co-sited analogue and digital repeaters on 70cm; relieving the pressure for channels in the 7.6MHz split which still supports a mixture of wide and narrow deviation FM repeaters.
