MX0WVV UHF linking project

The future is fun! As part of our linking project at Wymondham, we plan to grow into the Norwich too. These repeaters will be linked to GB3TX and consist of UHF base stations. See further down for locations and planned frequencies.

Why?
You will often hear the “we have enough repeaters” comment. While that is true, we plan on providing linking on top of the traditional repeater network. Our aim is to cover as much of Norfolk as possible, creating a local linked network. This brings local users together preventing silofication.

External linking
As always, we allow external linking. However the predominant use is for local repeaters in Norfolk. Repeaters will disconnect idle links and return to their ‘home’ connection.

Donations
We don’t often ask for money, most of our projects have been self funded. However in this case, things are starting to get expensive. Any donations are gratefully received. Please contact Jim M0ZAH via email (qrz.com).

GB0WFD – Winter Field Day 2023

TeamWave will be taking part in the WFD using the call sign GB0WFD.

Below is a message from our Mattermost system.

Thankyou to all of you for your support as at the beginning of the journey with The TeamWave collective. We are happy to announce our first meet up for this year on Sunday the 29th of January. We will be taking part in winter field day as GB0WFD at the NZ and VW site in Wymondham. It is at Standley steel stockholders NR189JD all are welcome but we will be working out of a little shed so please let us know if your interested in coming along.
Within the TeamWave ethos you are encouraged to come along and work the station. Get hands on with us and play some radio. We will be messing around with antennas in the field and there will be tea and coffee provided. If you would like food please bring it along with you. If you would like to come along please let us know in the DXpeditions feed.

If you’d like more information please contact us on our chat system.

TeamWave – Matrix

As the Fediverse has become a little more popular with the recent twitter fiasco, I’ve decided that now would be a good time to create a letstalkradio matrix chat system. Firstly I don’t plan on Mattermost going anywhere so you are welcome to stay. If anything we will probably set up a bridge between the two so messages are sent to both systems.

At the moment these are independent systems so messages on one will not show on the other.

The benefits of Matrix is that you can run your own server (if you wish) and the system supports many 3rd party clients, unlike Mattermost where you’re limited to the single client.

We have the one room at the moment: Teamwave – MX0WVV for testing.

I welcome everyone to create an account and come and try the system, and again this system (Mattermost) is not going anywhere at the moment.

Here are the instructions if you’d like to come along and play:

1) Visit https://app.element.io
2) Click Edit (under the information icon ‘i’)
3) Select “Other homeserver” and insert the URL “https://matrix.letstalkradio.org” and click continue.
4) Now under the Sign in button select “Create account”
5) Enter your desired username
6) Enter a strong password
7) Click Register
8) You’ll now be signed in, if you get a “You’re in” page click “Skip” in the middle of the screen
9) You can then join the Teamwave room “https://matrix.to/#/#admins:matrix.letstalkradio.org”

Following feedback we will then decide whether to bridge the two systems together.

GB7ZAH – On air testing

Our second packet station (GB7ZAH) switched on today for full testing. This has been a long time coming and joins GB7MSX in the East of Norfolk. There will be periods where the station may not be available while we change configs in the backend.

A huge thanks to Martin M5MSX for his help with configuration hits, and M7GMT for testing on air.

The next step is to get MB7NAF (M1MIT) node on the air.

If you’d like to use either GB7MSX/GB7ZAH you can connect via 1200Baud AX.25 on 144.950NFM.
