The GB7CD and GB7RB are active repeaters introduced by this forward thinking group of Radio operators interested in local and worldwide communication. The primary reason for setting up these systems was to enhance emergency communications in the locallity.

So although whilst both are internet linked, the group are working towards resilience of the equipment to maintain communications in times of emergency or disaster, whilst at the same time providing wide area services in normal use situations for tha ham community and for events.

Many simplex nodes in Wales support the repeaters in providing this wide area network ,such as MB6AA, MB6AB, MB6BA, MB6RL, MB6IRL, MB6ISB. MB6BS and MB6MT.
