Transmitter Trail Update

I posted a while back about a group of transmitters around Manchester/Yorkshire that I visited (see the list here). I blogged about a set of transmitters in Ashton, Manchester (here) but managed to somehow lose my pictures from the day!

So I decided to show you in video format instead using the footage from the day:

Part 1 - Holme Moss & Emley Moor.

Part 2 - Primrose Hill, Flixby Ridge/Ainley Top, Vicars Lot, Scapegoat Hill, Moorside Edge, Dog Hill.

Part 3 to follow!

Some Of The HHT's

Writers block lately guys, not a lot to tell you really. Just got back from a week in Lanzarote, I was going to take a Baofeng just incase but I decided not to.

Two things to report, Aquapark Lanzarote use a network of Pofung GT-1's and Rancho Texas in Costa Teguise, Lanzarote use Baofeng BF-888s radios! I noticed them straight away, how sad!

Anyhow, here's a couple of pics of some of my handhelds in their display case. The collection has grown considerably since these were taken, I'll take some new ones sometime.

Normal service will resume soon! Stay tuned.

Bowstones - GB3MR/GB3MN Repeater Site

Some photos I found from 2014 of the repeater site at Bowtone Gate. Situated at the top of a hill above Lyme Park, these antennas have a fantastic take off across Greater Manchester and beyond. Also on this site are a number of community repeaters serving businesses across Stockport and Manchester as well as organisations such as National Trust. Click to enlarge.
